The Memphis Tigers have the opportunity to clinch the American West on Saturday with a win over SMU. But that's easier said than done. The Mustangs bring one of the best passing attacks in the AAC, and can also run the ball well. SMU quarterback Ben Hicks is 2nd in the conference in passing yards, only behind Memphis QB Riley Ferguson. The Mustangs also have the conference leader in receiving yards in Trey Quinn.
Jones Wants More than Payout From VolsButch Jones may be out at Tennessee, but he wants more than a few parting gifts out the door. Accusations surfaced that Jones is swaying Vols recruits to decommit or stay away from the school. Nate Hodges, who's the owner and GM of Fox Sports Knoxville, tweeted Sunday that Jones is telling recruits to leave Tennessee immediately and if he ends up somewhere else to come with him.
It's back to the drawing board for the Memphis Tigers after absorbing a 12 point loss to 25th ranked Alabama. The Tigers, with 11 new players, were able to get the Tide in foul trouble, sprinting past them on the break and against the man to man. But when Bama switched to a zone, the Tigers fell apart, hitting just 2 of 17 beyond the arc, and only recording 8 assists in the game. Newcomer forward Kyvon Davenport said the Tigers didn't take advantage of an open zone.
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".
