News, notes, grades and more from Iowa's 24-15 loss to Purdue on Saturday at Kinnick Stadium. The Setup — Officially, the wind clocked 20 mph out of the northwest. Iowa won the toss and gave up the wind to begin the game. In the second half, Iowa decided to go into the wind. Iowa was going to have to go into the wind at some point, and head coach Kirk Ferentz decided it would be the fourth quarter. On its face, that seemed like a sound decision.
IOWA CITY — Earlier this week, Purdue Coach Jeff Brohm said he has tried to make this year fun for his football team. Despite six losses — four of which were one-score games — and remnants of the last few years of struggles, the Boilermakers have remained competitive. On Saturday against Iowa, Purdue was more than just competitive. Brohm’s had plenty of fun en route to a 24-15 victory — Brohm’s first on the road in the Big Ten — especially at the start of the third quarter.
IOWA CITY — Two weeks ago, Iowa succeeded as well as it ever has and the Hawkeyes were about as efficient as they’ve ever been through the air and on the ground against a team of such a high caliber in Ohio State. Two games later, and the opposite has been true both times. Iowa struggled to find any consistency through the air, was shut down on all but a pair of runs and had a woeful day flipping field position.
He had no reason to stop and answer questions from a guy who isn't there every week and who he certainly doesn't know or remember. But he did. Lots of people have those stories, and they don't forget them.
When I started covering races, his professionalism stood out. The first #Daytona500 I covered, he had won his Duel. I had chased down @landoncassill for an interview, came back and Jr's presser was done. He stayed on his way out to answer my questions.
@DaleJr As a kid, my family - like so many - was an Earnhardt-fan household. When Dale Jr. started, I picked him because Dale Sr. always was my dad's favorite. Only seemed appropriate. That fandom was repaid 10-fold. #NASCAR
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".
