Just over two weeks ago, so much seemed possible for St. John’s. Back then, St. John’s was 10-2, and had matched the program’s second-best start of the past 19 years, reaching double-digit wins more than a month earlier than last season’s team had. The defense was spectacular, but the shooting was still inconsistent, leaving plenty of room for Chris Mullin’s team to look even better in the Big East. Then came a 22-point home loss to sixth-place Providence.
Madison Square Garden was packed, and unwilling to divulge who was the home team. Villanova blue matched St. John’s red. Chants of “Let’s go Johnnies” quickly segued into “Air-ball” taunts of Red Storm forward Bashir Ahmed. The short trip up I-95 made it easy to see coming. The quick ride into Penn Station makes it easy to happen again, and again, and again. What happened on the court was just as competitive.
ATLANTA — It was here, in the fenced off, empty lot adjacent to the sparkling, jagged eye-candy of Mercedes-Benz Stadium, where Georgia last looked to be in Alabama’s weight class. Somewhere in that massive pile of ashes, where the Georgia Dome once stood, the Bulldogs fell 5 yards short of beating eventual national champion Alabama in the 2012 SEC title game.
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".
