Hit hard, like Dick Butkus used to do. That’s the mind-set Michigan linebacker Devin Bush Jr. has as he prepares to face dual-threat Ohio State quarterback J.T. Barrett on Saturday. Bush found out he was a finalist for the Butkus Award, awarded to the nation's best college linebacker, from a text message from his mother, Kesha, while he was in class. That honor earned him a rare compliment from his father, Devin Bush Sr.
A former Ohio State football captain said this week he’s “thankful” that his son played football for the Michigan Wolverines. Mike McCray Sr. was a captain for the 1988 Ohio State Buckeyes and will be wearing maize and blue at noon on Saturday at Michigan Stadium when his son, U-M fifth-year senior linebacker Mike McCray, gets a final opportunity to beat OSU. The Wolverines have lost five straight in “The Game” and 12 of the last 13 meetings.
The Detroit Red Wings weren’t good enough from the start. They certainly weren’t good enough at the end of the first and third periods. It cost them in the end. The Wings blew a two-goal lead in the third period and went on to lose, 4-3, in overtime to the Colorado Avalanche on Sunday night at Little Caesars Arena. Justin Abdelkader, Andreas Athanasiou and Niklas Kronwall scored for the Wings. Kronwall’s power play goal at 11:07 of the third gave the Wings a two-goal cushion.
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".
