When news surfaced last week that Derek Jeter indeed was part of group purchasing the Miami Marlins, one suggestion vaulted to the top of the future owners' checklist. Remove that hideous home run structure just beyond the outfield wall at Marlins Park. Except they can't. Because "Homer" is not actually owned by the Marlins. According to the Miami Herald, the $2.5 million piece of "art" is owned by Miami-Dade County and was put in place as part of Miami-Dade's Art in Public Places program.
But that's not what Urban Meyer really meant. While talking with ESPN's Chris Low, Ohio State's coach noted that the Nittany Lions "absolutely" deserved to be in last year's college football playoff. Penn State won the Big Ten championship game against Wisconsin, but was left out. At the time, the debate wasn't really around Penn State vs. Ohio State for that fourth spot, but rather Pac-12 champion Washington.
Entering the 2016 season, some wondered if it was the last hurrah for James Franklin at Penn State, coming off a pair of 7-6 campaigns. Fast forward 12 months and Franklin is one of the nation's highest-paid coaches. Fresh off a trip to the Rose Bowl and leading the Nittany Lions to a Big Ten championship, Franklin has a new six-year deal at Penn State and a salary approaching $6 million annually.
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".
