INDIANAPOLIS – Jacoby Brissett trudges out of the shower and toward his locker in the Indianapolis Colts locker room. He appears to be limping, but he’s walking so slowly it’s hard to tell. One locker over, backup quarterback Scott Tolzien is smiling kindly, maybe sympathetically. Brissett isn’t smiling back. Hurts too much to smile, looks like. It also hurts too much to stand – but he has no idea how he’s supposed to sit.
HANOVER – Stay with me, OK? This is a story about the college football rivalry between Hanover and Franklin, who met Saturday for the 87th time, but we’re starting it earlier in the week. Franklin won 56-14 thanks to some devastating skill players from Indianapolis, and we’ll get to the game, but we’re starting with a story from Monday. Franklin has beaten Hanover every year since 2005, and to the victor goes the Bell, so the Bell has been in Franklin coach Mike Leonard’s office for 12 years.
BLOOMINGTON – By halftime the Assembly Hall crowd was booing Indiana off the court. Midway through the second half, the Hoosiers trailing Indiana State by 30 points, the crowd was leaving early. With 1.2 seconds left, coach Archie Miller tried to join them. Indiana State was showing mercy in the final seconds, dribbling out its final possession after bludgeoning the Hoosiers for 39-plus minutes, and the shot-clock buzzer sounded with 1.2 seconds left.
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".
