If there was a surprise Saturday night at the end of the hour-long Heisman trophy presentation on ESPN, it was that Oklahoma fifth-year quarterback Baker Mayfield won running away from Stanford junior Bryce Love. The Cardinal running back has spent all season leaving defenders in his wake with his incredible vision, toughness and Olympic-sprinter speed. But Mayfield opened too much of a lead over a limping Love in the last month of the season for the result to be in doubt Saturday.
How would you assess the development of this defense in the past four or five games? "Each week we have gotten better at just doing our job. In the beginning of the year we were trying to do our own thing for the most part and we weren't trusting the system. We weren't trusting the coaches and it was getting us beat. As the year has gone on we've trusted doing our jobs more. If we do our job then the plays are going to come to us. You don't have to go out there and try to force plays.
The answer to two critical questions is to be determined after Tuesday's press conference with head coach David Shaw. Junior running back and Heisman candidate Bryce Love is "feeling better" from last week and could be a game-day decision, Shaw said. And for the second time this season Shaw announced that the quarterback position was open to competition. "Going forward, weâ€™ll see where we are with the quarterback situation is by the end of the week," Shaw said.
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".
