STILLWATER — James Washington sprang off the floor, and by the time he landed, the crowd gathered inside Oklahoma State's weight room was buzzing. That's what happens when you max out the vertical jump test. On Wednesday morning, the Cowboy receiver hit the top peg on the vertical pole, soaring 39 inches and recording the best mark of any player at OSU's pro day. What's more, he bettered his height from just a couple weeks ago at the NFL Combine by a whopping 4 ½ inches.
NORMAN — Orlando Brown wasn't supposed to lift first on the bench press. But that's what he wanted. Bench press was the skill test that derailed the Oklahoma tackle a couple weeks ago at the NFL Combine. A bad performance on it led to more bad performances. Really bad. He wanted to redeem himself Wednesday during the Sooners' Pro Day, so when he noticed receiver Jeff Badet, first up alphabetically, wasn't quite ready, Brown stepped forward. “That's the way I go, bro,” he said.
Micah Speight will never forget the excitement of Selection Sunday. Even though he knew his team was in the field — they'd won the league title and an automatic bid — he still got a jolt out of seeing their name pop up during the selection show. It validated all the hard work. It made everything real. “It was unbelievable,” Speight said.
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".
