BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -
There are plenty of tall and rangy wide receivers on the LSU roster - guys who are 6-foot-4, 6-foot-5, and even 6-foot-6 - but the two guys currently behind senior DJ Chark are Russell Gage from Redemptorist High School and Derrick Dillon, neither of which is over 6 feet tall.Copyright 2017 WAFB.
While weightlifting and protein have played a large role in their training, LSU linebackers Donnie Alexander and Michael Divinity joke that pizza and wings have likewise packed on the pounds. Alexander and Divinity hope to play a larger role on defensive coordinator Dave Aranda's group this year, especially with the departure of former stars Kendell Beckwith and Duke Riley. Alexander is coming off shoulder surgery, but apparently has been aggressive and confident during fall camp.
LSU senior nose tackle must feel like the Tigers' starting quarterback sometimes. The guy behind him is the next big thing. Last year at this time, Travonte Valentine was all the rage, billed as a true run stopper and someone who would smother opposing offenses in the middle. Valentine hardly lived up to the hype and is no longer with the program. This summer, people just couldn't stop asking about incoming freshman Tyler Shelvin from Notre Dame of Crowley.
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".
