Obinna Eze — the prize of the Memphis football recruiting class, the massive four-star offensive tackle from Nigeria by way of Nashville — had his eyes on a goat. “I got it,” said Eze. “I have a lot of experience with goats.”The goat made its move. Eze, drawing on those many years of goat experience, flashed in and grabbed the goat by its horns. “I know what we’re doing on Tuesday for workouts,” said Memphis offensive line coach Ryan Silverfield, watching this all unfold.
1. You just knew Grizzlies general manger Chris Wallace would have to get into the draft, didn’t you? And sure enough, the Grizzlies swapped two future second-round picks for two second-round picks Thursday night and drafted Cal big man Ivan Rabb (with the 35th pick) and Oregon wing Dillon Brooks (with the 45th). 2. I have seen too many second-round Griz flops to get wildly excited about either selection.
Tubby Smith is telling a story. About transfers. It unfolded during his first year at High Point University. Smith was homesick. He was just one of three African-Americans at the school. He called his father to tell him he was thinking of coming home. His father asked Smith if the folks at High Point were still feeding him. He asked if Smith still had a place to sleep. He asked if anyone had done anything mean to him. Smith assured his father it was none of that, but that he still wanted to leave.
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".
