When the upset was over, once Louisiana-Monroe had embarrassed Alabama 21-14 in 2007 and Bryant-Denny Stadium became eerily quiet, a Warhawks cornerback named Quintez Secka searched for Nick Saban to shake his hand. Secka had intercepted Alabama quarterback John Parker Wilson twice that day, nearly scoring on the second interception. Secka was a two-star junior college transfer who chose ULM in part because it played SEC schools.
BIRMINGHAM, Ala. -- This is what the death of a college football program looks like. Despondent players collapse in the arms of a team chaplain. Irate players challenge the university president for specific answers. A couple hundred supporters chant and cheer for the coach, and then heckle and chase after the president and his police escort. The band played, tears flowed, and football died Tuesday at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. It was 24 years old.
The NCAA made its post-Ed O'Bannon trial arguments Tuesday, filing conclusions that were heavy on amateurism and a landmark Supreme Court ruling and included claims that the plaintiffs didn’t properly define markets under antitrust law. In its 36-page brief, the NCAA used the word “amateurism” 46 times and cited the University of Oklahoma Board of Regents v. Oklahoma case on 22 occasions.
@dcsportsbog They gained 9 yards on the 1st 2 runs. Simply didn't covert a huge 3rd and 1 run. Bigger question: What the heck happened on Cousins pass near end of regulation that became intentional grounding?
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".
