You shouldn’t have been surprised last week when Auburn athletic director Jay Jacobs suggested the Tigers should swap places with Missouri and move to the SEC East. After all, who wants to be in the same football division with Alabama? Jacobs didn’t mention his archrival. He just talked about the importance of demographics and geography. In fact, the Auburn administration should be studying the feasibility of moving the entire campus to somewhere in South Georgia.
One thing is certain as the SEC spring meetings end Friday: Not all the coaches will be back for next year’s gathering. That’s how it goes in a league as competitive as this one is in football. And it’s getting more competitive in basketball. By league standards, there was modest attrition in football and men’s basketball this past school year. Most of the action was at LSU, which replaced football coach Les Miles with Ed Orgeron and basketball coach Johnny Jones with Will Wade.
Player eligibility surely will be a topic of conversation among SEC football coaches when the conference's spring meetings begin Tuesday. But that's nothing new. The subject has been popping up for several years now. It gained momentum earlier this year when the American Football Coaches Association announced a proposal that would allow players to play in as many as four games in a season without losing a year of eligibility.
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".
