Football legacies, good and bad, usually have a Thanksgiving Day memory attached to them. Other than Super Bowl Sunday, there’s no bigger spotlight day in the NFL. While other players are home pulling themselves away from dining room tables long enough to watch on TV, players from six teams are trying to produce more Thanksgiving memories in Detroit and Dallas, and this year, Washington. For those not scoring at home, Detroit is 37-38-2 when hosting Turkey Day games; Dallas is 30-18-1.
Here are staff writer John Rowe’s 10 burning questions entering Week 12 of the college football season:1. How can Rutgers improve its sometimes stagnant offense before next season? By developing a quarterback. The Scarlet Knights, averaging 92 yards passing in Big Ten games, think they have one in Old Bridge native Artur Sitkowski, a four-star recruit who has decommitted from Miami.
EAST RUTHERFORD - The man the Giants call Jackrabbit has slowed down long enough to answer his growing legion of critics. But if you were expecting an apology from cornerback Janoris Jenkins for what many thought was his lackadaisical, at best, play in Sunday’s loss to the previously winless 49ers, think again. While admitting he, like a lot of the Giants, didn’t play well, he bristled at the idea that he quit on his beleaguered team. “It wasn’t lack of effort.
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".
