ANN ARBOR, Mich. — The Jim Harbaugh coverage gets more ridiculous by the day. This isn’t Harbaugh’s fault. This isn’t the University of Michigan’s fault. This is the media’s doing. Every week we are subjected to inane articles — i.e., “click bait: — by the breathless media types regaling us with stories of the latest Jim Harbaugh “happening,” and frankly it’s getting nauseating. Just this week we learned that Harbaugh helped birth a baby cow.
Jim Harbaugh has gotten his revival of Michigan football off to a good start, but to clear the next hurdle, he needs to have key players stay healthy. Gridiron Now looks at the 10 players the Wolverines can least afford to lose in 2017. RELATED: With Jim Harbaugh’s culture in place, don’t expect a decline at Michigan any time soon
It is well-documented that Michigan took heavy graduation losses following the 2016 season. The Wolverines have just six returning starters — five on offense and one on defense. The heavy losses obviously create many opportunities for younger players and in many cases require the younger Wolverines grow up and contribute quickly. Success for Jim Harbaugh in his third season at the helm requires quick and strong contributions from these underclassmen.
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".
