Fab 4 picks
Last week was more like it. A strong showing — our only loss was the UT-Kentucky under — pushed us back to 10 games over .500. But there is no time to rest. And there are a slew of entertaining opportunities this week. Oklahoma plus-3 over Oklahoma State. Yes, this is a monster rivalry game. Yes, this game is in Stillwater and that place will be nuts.

Some people do not want the statue of Gen. A.P. Stewart in front of the Hamilton County Courthouse because, mainly, his presence reminds too many of us of slavery and racism.
Lots to get to today. Let's make like a stripper (sorry, adult entertainer/shoe model/or whatever euphemism you prefer) go straight to the polls. 1. Philadelphia. OK, there are times and moments when franchises strike gold and turn a normal football team into a serious contender with a championship window that spans years. We are in that period for the Philadelphia Eagles, who at 6-1 have the best record in football.
@genehenleytfp Agree. And instead of talking about the crimes his son committed, now the talk is about all the background noise around it, too. Now if one of the Ball boys takes a knee during the anthem, everybody buckle up and hide the children. (Side note: Great job on UTC football this year)
@Coleybama That may be the biggest difference in the game. The hybrid safety that covers slot receivers, is roughly the same size as LT and hits like Ronnie Lott on his best day. I have mentioned in a while NFL players are underpaid?
@Brad_Shepard@patrickbobo Here's hoping UT gets the hero they deserve. DM me if you and the Mrs. (she's a great lady regardless of her college affliiation) need some place to tailgate Saturday. I have a lot of folks down there. Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours Baby Shep.
@patrickbobo@Brad_Shepard You are a good friend. And in some regards, I'm in same boat. Auburn grad happily married to a UGA grad. Our kids are AU fans of course. But our compromise: is below. A dog that looks just like UGA but is named Bo Jackson. https://t.co/77ca3t7lMO
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".
