CEDAR RAPIDS — John Oostendorp didn’t want to put a number on it. But he knows one thing — it’s not going to be easy. “You can’t have a bad day. You can’t have a bad match at the wrong time,” the Coe wrestling coach said of the NCAA III Lower Midwest Regional, which begins a two-day run Saturday at the Five Flags Center in Dubuque. The national-qualifier features 17 teams, including top-ranked and five-time defending champion Wartburg, fifth-ranked host Loras, the No. 7 Kohawks and No. 25 Central.
Dan Gable, the legendary University of Iowa wrestling coach, had a wonderful way taking a question, twisting it just enough to give you an answer that was unexpected yet made perfect sense. Tom Brands, the current Iowa coach, has the same talent. Take last week during a news conference to promote Sunday afternoon’s dual with Iowa State in Ames, a matchup the Hawkeyes won 35-6.
IOWA CITY — Sunday marks the 82nd meeting between the Iowa and Iowa State wrestling teams. The Hawkeyes own a commanding 63-16-2 series lead and have won 13 straight matchups. That begs the question. Is this still a rivalry? Iowa Coach Tom Brands, who is 12-0 in the series, said yes. “The rivalry is important because you’re after the same real estate,” he said. “Not just local real estate, but national real estate. “You look at where they want to go. You look at where we want to go.
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".
