The Big Ten was left out of the 2017 College Football Playoff, in part, due to a non-conference game. If eventual league champion Ohio State doesn't lose to Oklahoma early in the year, it's the Buckeyes, and not the Sooners, that likely would have gone to the Rose Bowl and played Georgia. So non-conference games can mean a lot in the end. Here's a look at each Big Ten team's toughest non-conference game in 2018, starting with Rutgers and then examining the rest of the league in alphabetical order:
Nick Suriano stayed put, but most of his fellow ranked Rutgers wrestlers slipped a bit in the latest round of national weight class rankings. Suriano remains the consensus No. 2 125-pounder according to the three major ranking outlets - Intermat, FloWrestling and The Open Mat - but the services are not in agreement on the other five ranked Scarlet Knights, with four dropping in at least one set of rankings. No wrestler moved up more than one spot in any ranking.
John McNulty will have 200,000 reasons to stick around and bring Rutgers' offensive coordinator instability to an end. McNulty will return to Rutgers for his second stint on a three-year, $1.875 million deal that includes a $200,000 buyout in the first year, according to the terms of the full contract obtained by NJ Advance Media through an Open Public Records Act request.
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".
