Watching a college football game that Keith Jackson was broadcasting was like watching a game with your dad or your grandfather. There was always an appreciation of the event, but also a sprinkling of folksy phrases. The linemen were “the big uglies,” an unattractive but very necessary part of the game.
Overtime turned out to be a good time for the College Football Playoff. The CFP championship game as well as the Rose Bowl semifinal went into extra time and produced big TV viewership numbers. Monday’s title game, won 26-23 in OT by Alabama over Georgia, was seen by an average of 28.4 million viewers on ESPN (which had 27.4 million itself), as well as on “MegaCast” networks ESPN2 and ESPNU. It’s the No.
A little common sense can go a long way. However, it seems like it’s seldom given the chance. First, there’s the New England Patriots. ESPN decided last week to raise the question of just how united the team was, whether coach Bill Belichick, quarterback Tom Brady and owner Robert Kraft still liked each other. Here’s the answer, at least the answer ESPN should’ve come up with: Who cares? The Patriots have this mystique around them.
The Body Worlds exhibit at the California Science Center "MUST CLOSE" Feb. 4. They've lost their lease! ALL BODIES MUST GO! They've got to get ready for the big King Tut exhibit. But how do we know the bodies from Body Worlds aren't just being repurposed as mummies for King Tut? https://t.co/QD3C2kUiPh

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".
