At least Kevin Griffin gives you a warning.This, he says, is going to sound like your everyday, run-of-the-mill coach speak. So prepare yourself for the giving of “110 percent,” to hear how the team is going to take it “one game at a time” and that it couldn’t have happened without “hard work and dedication.”But when the 13-year coaching veteran of the Eastern Mennonite women’s basketball team starts cajoling with clichés, he’s right.
Of course coaches are judged on their wins and losses. So, when you pass judgment on the 15-year career of Eastern Mennonite basketball coach Kirby Dean, take a quick glance at his current mark of 194-188 that will grow before this season, and his career at EMU, ends.It’s good enough for tops in program history and proving that he did his best for the only job he ever wanted — leading his alma mater.
HARRISONBURG — It’s a moment Kirby Dean can recall without a hint of hesitation.Stuck in a celebratory scrum on the court at Guilford College, the veteran coach at Eastern Mennonite University locked eyes with his point guard, George Johnson, from about 25 feet away.“We started running toward each other,” Dean said Thursday.
@LenKasper It's a social game. You supposed to sit around, watch, keep a book (if you wish) and talk. All the while (for the most part) sitting outside. They could be 5 hours long, and I wouldn't mind. Now, please, get off my lawn.
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".
