Michael Tarbutt missed it. He was out there at Rentschler Field before the game booming 50-yard field goal after 50-yard field goal. His leg felt great. His technique was good. This was never a leg strength issue. This was an accuracy issue. And, sure enough, the 33-yard field goal attempt Tarbutt pushed right as time expired Sunday, failing to push this wild football game into overtime, pierced the UConn football team straight to the heart. "Great snap, great hold.
Keith Rocco dropped us into the middle of the 2010 Coors Light SK Modified 100 at Stafford Motor Speedway. He dropped us into the intense noise and speed to the heartbeat of a rivalry and glorious friendship. "It seemed like every week at Stafford, every week at Waterford, Ted Christopher and I were racing each other for the win at the end of the night," Rocco said. "The respect we had for each other, it just grew. If I wasn't going to win, I wanted to see him win. I know it was the other way around.
Geno Auriemma was out of state the past few days. He said he hasn't gotten any direct blowback from his voice-over on a video promoting UConn in its fight against more than $300 million in cuts to the state university. Not yet anyway. "Nobody called me with death threats," Auriemma said. "I know, they don't want to hear how much money I'm making. Who the hell are you? How much are we paying a women's basketball coach? I get it. If you want me to leave, I'll leave. Go back and play Maine and Rhode Island.
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".
