USC is headed toward signing another top-ranked recruiting class next month but the question now is whether it will be enough in a reconfigured Pacific-12 Conference featuring marquee coaches like Chip Kelly (UCLA) and Kevin Sumlin (Arizona). Anyone who watched USC squeak out victories over Texas, Utah, Arizona, UCLA or Stanford last season knows the Trojans need every talent advantage they can get. In its current form, USC probably will not beat teams of equal talent.
Keith Jackson, perhaps the best-known college football announcer of all-time, died Friday evening. He was 89. Jackson, who worked for ABC Sports for 40 years, coined such memorable phrases as “big uglies” (large linemen), “fum-blllllllllllllllle!” and “Whoa, Nelly!” He is credited with nicknaming the Rose Bowl as “The Granddaddy of them All” and Michigan Stadium as “The Big House.”Jackson also did many USC games. His final broadcast was the 2006 Rose Bowl between USC and Texas.
Tee Martin Staying At USC But Will He Call All The Plays? I heard when Tee Martin interviewed with LSU, he was getting a new contract to stay at USC. That was confirmed today by ProFootballTalk.com, which reported he would turn down the Raiders and stay at USC with a new contract. Now the big question: Would Martin possibly stay if he does not call all the plays? He didn’t call at the plays at the Cotton Bowl. If he doesn’t next season, it’s on him now.
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".
