Expectations are soaring after 2016’s unforgettable run to the Big Ten championship and appearance in the Rose Bowl. So, naturally, the talk all offseason has revolved around one big question: Can the Nittany Lions take it a step further this season and make the College Football Playoff? It’s not an easy question to answer. And no one will know for sure until Dec. 3. But, at this early point, we thought we’d poll our two resident experts to see what their thoughts were.
A single strike — that made all the difference in Wednesday’s Section 4 Little League Baseball championship. Bellefonte fell 8-6 to Hollidaysburg, which ended the game at Montresor Field on a walk-off home run with two strikes and two outs. The Hollidaysburg Tigers will now advance to the state championship tournament Sunday in Fleetville. Bellefonte’s season is over. Fans shouted to the local team from the outfield after the game, telling them to be proud of the season and keep their heads up.
The State College Spikes parlayed Monday’s postponement into a doubleheader sweep Tuesday, as they defeated Williamsport 9-3 in Game 1 and followed that up with an extra-inning 3-1 victory (eight innings) in Game 2. The two wins were critical, especially considering State College (17-11) and Williamsport (14-12) were both a half-game back on Monday. The Spikes are now involved in a three-way tie atop the division, alongside Mahoning Valley and West Virginia.
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".
