Twenty months after Calvin Johnson retired, there’s no denying who’s taken his place as the Lions’ go-to wide receiver. Golden Tate has 147 catches since the start of last season, more than all but six other NFL players, and he leads the Lions in targets, receptions and yards this year. But Tate wasn’t always the heir apparent in Detroit. In fact, go back to Week 4 of last season and Tate’s future never seemed so up in the air.
If Jim Bob Cooter has any interest in returning to coach at his alma matter, he's not saying. Cooter neither confirmed nor denied his interest in succeeding Butch Jones as University of Tennessee coach at his weekly news conference Thursday. Jones was fired last week after a blowout loss to Missouri, and Cooter has been mentioned as a potential replacement. Cooter, 33, played as a backup quarterback at Tennessee and served as a graduate assistant at the school in 2007-08.
The Detroit Lions could be without defensive end Ziggy Ansah for the second straight weekend. Ansah missed his fifth consecutive practice Thursday with a back injury, casting doubt on his availability for Sunday's NFC North game against the Chicago Bears. Lions coach Jim Caldwell said Ansah is "week to week." "We just kind of go week to week and see what happens, day to day," Caldwell said.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
