Vanderbilt officials should be more open about the idea of sharing an off-campus stadium with a professional soccer team, but I can’t blame Derek Mason for leaving this one alone. I asked Mason if he’d be willing to talk about the idea during SEC Media Days, and he said he needed to learn more about it and would be willing to sit down on it at another time. But he can’t say what he must really think — what any college coach would think — about a move like this.
The more you think about Vanderbilt football moving off campus and sharing a stadium with a Major League Soccer team at The Fairgrounds Nashville, the more it grows on you. For example, I’ve been thinking about this quite a bit for the past few months and the idea has been upgraded in my mind from “a nuclear winter’s worth of dumb” to “terrible.” By the time they break ground in a few years, it could rise as high as “unfortunate.”That’s about my ceiling.
Ten years away from a bike, no problem – jump on and it’s like it was 10 minutes. Same with a typewriter. Ten years away from, say, a relationship might be trickier. But then, there’s something second-nature about building them the way college coaches do when they are hunting for players. So it probably shouldn’t be a surprise that the one question about Vanderbilt women’s basketball coach Stephanie White when she was hired last spring no longer burns.
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".
