The App State Mountaineers football team (1-1) faced off against the Savannah State Tigers (0-1) in their first home game of the season. Appalachian looked to bounce back from a crushing season opener against Georgia, with the hopes of a good game being a kick-starter for a season they hope will end in a bowl game. The Mountaineers got the kick-starter they wanted, as their high-powered offense seemed to be able to do whatever they wanted to their FCS opponents.
Recent years have seen a quiet giant residing in Kidd Brewer Stadium. It is underrated, unheralded and often underestimated. It calls itself “The Legion of Boone” and it is the secondary of the Mountaineers’. The defensive backfield has spent the past few years as one of the top units in the Sun Belt conference and is a threatening group on the national stage.
The Appalachian State women’s soccer team (0-3-2) remained winless in the season after a 1-1 overtime draw with the UNC Greensboro Spartans (1-3-1) on Friday night in a foggy and raining game. App State returned to Boone after a loss to Northern Kentucky looking for their first win of the season after bringing in a measly single point from four games with a record of 0-3-1. UNCG entered the game coming off of a 0-4 loss to Clemson.
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".
