The 121st Civil War will be played on Saturday at Autzen Stadium. It will be the first rivalry game for Oregon Ducks coach Willie Taggart and Oregon State interim coach Cory Hall. So here's 121 other facts about the Civil War that you didn't know... or maybe you do:1. John M. Bloss, president of Oregon State when the rivalry began in 1894, was a former sergeant in the Union Army during the real Civil War. 2. The first reference to the "Civil War" football game appeared in newspapers in 1929. 3.
Oregon State coach Cory Hall said this week that he knew the Beavers were going to win last season's Civil War when he looked across saw the Ducks bring out their raincoats under the rain. It caused a stir with some in Eugene, including Ducks defensive back Arrion Springs, who offered: "It was cold. It was raining, it was cold. His comments sound like the guy hating on the guy who gets all the girls. You can't hate the guy who gets all the girls, it makes all the girls like him more.
It was only two games into the Oregon Ducks men's basketball season and already, those with connections to Troy Brown Jr. were reaching out to the NBA. The five-star true freshman scored 18 points against Coppin State in the season opener. Then he got 17 against Prairie View. And so the handlers, with two games of performance in the books, wanted to know where the league scouts thought would the Ducks freshman would go in the NBA Draft. I haven't. The scouts haven't. But that's sort of where we are.
Oregon State’s Cory Hall on his raincoat comment:
"That’s not trash talking. Someone took that as trash talking? If we’re going to engage in trash talking, I can do a lot better than that… I don’t mean disrespect to anybody."
"I was asked about an experience, what it felt like and what I saw, and now people want to make it a big deal,” said Cory Hall about his Civil War raincoat comment. “I didn’t mean to ruffle any feathers."
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".
