Six months after hiring Justin Wilcox to reinvigorate its football program, Cal has finalized and approved his contract. The Bay Area News Group obtained a copy Wednesday. The key takeaways:* Wilcox signed a five-year deal that runs through the 2021 season. * His base salary is $250,000 per year. * The talent fee, which is guaranteed, ranges from $1.25 million in the first year to $2.5 million in the final year.
The Pac-12 finished a few picks short of a record first-round haul in the NFL Draft. Eight weeks later, it’s once again in range of uncharted territory. The conference record for first-round picks in the NBA Draft is seven, set in 2008. It’s unlikely the 2017 class will surpass the ’08 mark for top-tier talent — there were five Lottery Picks that year — but it wouldn’t take much to set a record for total first-round selections.
The second of back-to-back Hotline posts on news from late last week examines the conference’s business affairs. It was spurred by two developments, one a head scratcher, the other a jaw dropper. * The head scratcher: Comments by outgoing Pac-12 Networks president Lydia Murphy-Stephans. * The jaw dropper: Big Ten conference distribution projections for FY18. Yes, the items are related. Both are about money.
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".
