CHARLOTTE – College football coaches attending the American Football Coaches Association’s annual convention were “unanimous,” according to executive director Todd Berry, in support of a significant rule change regarding player eligibility. For the second year in a row, the AFCA asked coaches at the convention about altering the existing redshirt rule to allow players to participate in up to four games in a season and still retain status as a redshirt (thus preserving four years of eligibility).
ATLANTA — They tried to play it off as just another halftime adjustment. Nick Saban called his quarterbacks together and told them he was going with Tua Tagovailoa in the third quarter. “We needed a spark on offense,” Saban said, which was at once correct and also a complete understatement. Likewise, when Alabama’s 26-23 overtime victory against Georgia was complete, it fell to a former disciple to distill the essence of his former coach’s gamble.
When you talk about Scott Frost’s season, it’s important to differentiate. There was the surprising perfection of Central Florida’s unbeaten run to the American Athletic Conference championship and to the Peach Bowl victory over Auburn. And then there was the continuous speculation regarding his future. The parallel streams converged in early December, during the final moments of the conference championship game, when news broke that Frost, 42, would become Nebraska’s head coach.
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".
