It appears the Big Ten’s women’s soccer coaches have a better idea what Penn State has this season than the rest of the nation. When the conference announced its preseason poll earlier this week, the Nittany Lions were the unanimous choice as the favorite. In early August, however, when the United Soccer Coaches Association’s annual preseason coaches’ poll came out, four Big Ten teams made the top 25 — but Penn State was nowhere to be found.
You might think heading into college as the No. 1 running back recruit in the country, only to be relegated to a second-string role as a freshman, would have been the toughest part of Miles Sanders’ transition. That assumption would be incorrect. What was tougher? Fielding kickoffs in front of 107,000 people and national television audiences. “They never kicked it to me in high school,” he said during the team’s media day on Aug. 5.
Some of minor league baseball’s top prospects will be in State College next summer. The State College Spikes will host the 2018 New York-Penn League All-Star Game at Medlar Field at Lubrano Park. The site of next season’s contest was made Tuesday night in Troy, N.Y., during this year’s all-star game at Tri-City’s Joseph L. Bruno Stadium. The game will be played in State College for a second time, following the first contest in the stadium in 2009.
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".
