The concentration of wealth continues in the Great Midwest. Ohio State put Illinois through its misery 52-14, locking up the Big Ten East. Meanwhile, if No. 5 Wisconsin didn’t silence the critics of its schedule by notching a convincing victory over No. 24 Michigan, it lowered the decibels of the doubters a bit. Now, it’s official: the Buckeyes and the Badgers will meet in the Big Ten championship game.
News flash: The Badgers need to win out to make the College Football Playoff. Analysis: Who doesn’t need to win out to make the playoff? My old place of business, the Chicago Sun-Times, is doing Podcasts in Print. So consider the above two observations Twitter in Print. Here’s the deal. . . At No. 5, behind Alabama, Clemson, Miami and Oklahoma Wisconsin is right where it ought to be. Win out, and it moves into the top four in place of the Clemson-Miami loser.
When we peel away the obvious—that Miami not only was flat-out better, and that Notre Dame was not ready for this big a stage—what did we learn from the Hurricanes’ 41-8 blitz of the Irish? Start with the most important: Speed kills. I thought the Irish, with Josh Adams running behind a line that features two likely first-round NFL draft picks, would impose their will on the ground.
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".
