Regarding the complicated matter of playing quality defense in an unprecedented era of offensive success for college football teams, TCU coach Gary Patterson clings to three basic tenets.“Our whole thing is about getting three-and-outs, third-down defense and red-zone defense,” said Patterson, who also calls the team’s defensive signals. “Every year, the question is how you make yourself better in those categories.
The first step in TCU quarterback Kenny Hill’s Reputation Redemption Tour unfolded in impressive fashion Saturday night in Amon G. Carter Stadium. But it would be wise to hold off on the unbridled optimism in the wake of a 63-0 rout of Jackson State until more evidence surfaces, starting with this week’s contest at Arkansas.Hill, a fifth-year senior from Southlake Carroll, threw more interceptions than any starting quarterback in the Big 12 during last year’s 6-7 season.
In the ever-changing world of college football, TCU players will report Saturday for fall drills with no opportunity to experience two-a-day practice sessions with contact. Those were banned in April by the NCAA. But the timing of each practice is left to the coach’s discretion, with an on-field workout of three hours permitted on the same day as a walk-through session.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
