If your team is still playing on this final week of November, that means they’re within an arm’s length of playing in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in two weeks for a state championship. And as we have all season long, we’ll be there for you tonight with not only our weekly broadcast, but with updates from all the action across the state.
Notes: The game features the top two running backs in the state, as they finished 1-2 in the regular-season rushing list. Covington’s Devin Brumfield rushed for 1,779 yards and 18 touchdowns on 233 carries, while Hahnville’s Anthony “Pooka” Williams went for 1,734 yards and 23 touchdowns on 158 carries. Including the playoffs, Williams has passed Brumfield, but both are over 2,000 yards. Williams now has 2,337 yards and 29 touchdowns, while Brumfield has 2,030 yards and 21 touchdowns.
Below are the exact picks I have made in the NOLA.com | The Times-Picayune Pick 'Em League, and my picks against the spread are added in as lagniappe. At the bottom are my weekly and season records. To join and compete against me at NOLA.com | The Times-Picayune, you'll need to have (or create) a CBSSports.com ID. It's very easy to create one, and participate. It's free, and the weekly winner will be mentioned in my column on Tuesdays. The winner of the league will be featured at season's end.
Alright, y'all. Here are my (extended) capsules and predictions for the week. Some of these were REAL tough. Don't be hatin' on me if I picked against you. I've been wrong 13 percent of the time in the playoffs this year, so there's a chance. ;) https://t.co/iDkUEag55U#nolaprep
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".
