At the end, aided by a pick-6 by Javelin Guidry, and a blocked field goal, the Utes bobbed up and down on the field like JiffyPop kernels on a hot stove, obviously concerned for Huntley, but pleased with their win. Why wouldn’t they be?
When the Big 12 spurned BYU, Holmoe was surprised: “Going in, I was confident,” he says. “We had a really good proposal. When the Big 12 decided not to do anything, we didn’t see that coming. I just felt like we had something good going here. When we went through the process, we were stronger than I thought we were. Going to powerful people, alums, we realized, we’ve got something great here. People say, we got rejected. I don’t look at it like that. It was the wrong time, that’s all.
Those quarterbacks were put in situations where they could sling the ball around the field, and they had enough talent in front of them, behind them, and on the outside to advance the ball and keep advancing it. Jim McMahon, who won a Super Bowl with the Chicago Bears, once told me the best offense he ever played on was the one he directed at BYU. When I said, “You mean in college, right?” He answered in classic McMahonian style: “Did you not hear me?
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".
