The Florida Gators still don’t have a starting quarterback. Florida coach Jim McElwain hadn’t met with reporters since last Friday when he stepped up to the podium for a news conference Wednesday. He said the three-man race between Feleipe Franks, Luke Del Rio and Malik Zaire still was ongoing as the Gators prepare to open the season against Michigan on September 2 in Arlington, Texas. “I’m not naming a starter right now,” McElwain said. “You’re going to see a bunch of them in there playing.
The Florida quarterback battle remains a three-man race, which is good news for junior Luke Del Rio. While most analysts expected UF coach Jim McElwain to choose between redshirt freshman Feleipe Franks and grad transfer Malik Zaire, Del Rio still can’t be counted out with the season-opener against Michigan drawing ever closer. Franks has the perfect blend of size and arm strength. Zaire is a dynamic runner. But Del Rio has the edge in experience under McElwain.
Each of the three Florida quarterbacks competing to be coach Jim McElwain’s starter brings a different element. Junior Luke Del Rio has experience with McElwain, starting six games last season. Graduate transfer Malik Zaire is an enticing dual-threat weapon, evident in his three starts at Notre Dame. Redshirt freshman Feleipe Franks has perhaps the biggest asset: He is the prototype of what an elite quarterback looks like with his blend of size and arm strength.
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".
