And so is the Tiger Football Podcast. Before the Memphis football team kicks off fall camp Friday afternoon, host and beat reporter Tom Schad is joined by columnist Geoff Calkins to talk the lofty expectations surrounding the team in 2017, Riley Ferguson's potential and what they'll be looking to see in practice over the next few weeks.

They met at Briarcrest High School, back before either one of them had become a household name, back before "The Blind Side" and before the wins over Alabama and before the fame and the riches and before the fall. Sean Tuohy coached the eighth grade boys basketball team at Briarcrest. Hugh Freeze coached the high school girls team at Briarcrest.
Why, yes, I’ll take questions on the Ole Miss fiasco. Fire away. Why didn’t Hugh Freeze use a burner phone to call the escort service? Why did Richard Nixon tape his incriminating conversations? Why did Bill Clinton bring Monica Lewinsky into the Oval Office? Why do people — OK, mostly men — do such stupid things in the course of doing such stupid things? OK, but why didn’t Freeze at least redact the number of the escort service before handing it over to Houston Nutt’s attorney?
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
