The 2017 NCAA Football season is becoming one of the most memorable in recent memory. With the high scoring games, wild upsets, weekly highlight reels, and solid NFL prospects filling up our TV screens every Saturday, this year has given us one exciting game after another. Many are familiar with upperclassmen such as Louisville quarterback Lamar Jackson, Notre Dame running back Josh Adams, Northwestern running back Justin Jackson, Ohio State quarterback J.T.
The 2017 National Football League season has reached its halfway point. The playoff picture is starting to emerge, contenders are separating themselves from the pretenders, and everyone is gearing up for the stretch run. Despite all of the political and behind the scenes turmoil that the league has been caught up in this season, there has been some great football to watch on the field.
Share Tweet Share Share Email When the second set of College Football Playoff rankings were released on Tuesday night there was a slight surprise on the list, especially to those that don’t follow the Big Ten Conference. Coming in at the tail end at No. 25 were the suddenly red hot Northwestern Wildcats (6-3, 4-2 Big Ten). NU wasn’t exactly a playoff favorite heading into the season, even more so after a 2-3 start in which they surrendered 30 or more points in those losses, and we’re...
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".
