By JIM KLEINPETER | Tiger Rag Featured ColumnistTo paraphrase former sports broadcaster Keith Olbermann, “Welcome to the rest of my career.”On the show launching ESPN2 in 1993, Olbermann’s actually said “end of our careers.” He couldn’t have been more wrong, and I’m happy my 37-year career as a sports writer hasn’t ended quite yet. Many thanks to my friend and publisher Jim Engster and editor Cody Worsham for making that happen with this column opportunity.
LSU obviously likes to start it's football fans out young. Friday night and Saturday morning was a big one in Baton Rouge for members of Mike's Kids Club. The kids ages 12 and under capped a big night Friday with a camp out on the same Tiger Stadium field where Billy Cannon roared to an 89-yard touchdown run to beat Ole Miss on Halloween night and where Tommy Hodson and Eddie Fuller connected to set off the campus seismograph to win the Earthquake Game vs. Auburn.
Leonard Fournette made a significant, if not spectacular, splash into the NFL with 100 yards rushing and a TD on 26 carries as Jacksonville scored a surprising 29-7 victory at Houston. Five of his runs picked up first downs. Fournette also caught three passes for 24 yards. Fournette topped the list of the best 10 performances during the week of the 2017 NFL season. LSU had 42 players on rosters or practice squads to start the season. Two of the biggest playmakers among ex-Tigers did not play.
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".
