Former NBA player Dan Dickau discussed the summer of Trail Blazers rookie Zach Collins with me on the Bald Faced Truth radio show (weekdays 12-3p). Dickau thinks Collins is going to end up being a great pick for the Blazers. Listen to the full interview here. "If you look at (Caleb) Swanigan, he's a thicker guy who has had to lose weight over the course of his college career to be a bona fide NBA guy," Dickau said. "If you look at Collins, it's the opposite.
Oregon State quarterback Jake Luton joined me Monday on the Bald Faced Truth radio show (weekdays 12-3p) to talk about his mystery illness and the "four horsemen" in the Beavers backfield this season. Listen to the full interview here. "I came in, I was about 230 (pounds)," he said. "I got real sick. They never really pinpointed what it was. It was something in my stomach, or it was something in my esophagus. I ended up losing quite a bit of weight. I went through spring ball and I was 205 or 210.
Have you ever seen someone miss a two-foot putt? I have. I've missed a gimme (or three) myself. So on Friday when Oregon Ducks football coach Willie Taggart formally dismissed Darren Carrington for the DUII he was charged with I didn't roll my eyes and say, "Well, sure, that was an easy one." If Carrington were a young Taggart recruit, say from Florida, playing in his first season of college football, would flushing him have been a more difficult move? Sure.
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".
