The dominoes have started to fall at Texas. Eleven Longhorns and four Texas signees were taken in this week’s MLB Draft. A dozen of those draftees have collegiate eligibility remaining, so they have until July 15 to decide whether to start their professional careers or play at Texas in 2018. Not all of those decisions will be made at the deadline, though, as some plans have already been reported or announced.
Let’s use Texas’ roster, history and scouting reports to countdown to the start of the 2017 football season. Today, we are only 73 days away from Texas’ home game against Maryland. Which Longhorn wears No. 73? Offensive lineman Patrick Hudson, a 6-5, 325-pound guard who redshirted in 2016. Last year, Hudson was among the four freshmen who arrived at Texas following an exodus from Baylor’s recruiting class. Other Longhorns that have worn No. 73?
For Texas pitcher Morgan Cooper, it’s back to the blue. On Monday, the Longhorns right-hander was taken by the Los Angeles Dodgers with the 62nd overall pick of the MLB first-year player draft. The second-round selection means that Cooper, whose draft position is valued at $1 million, will be trading in his burnt-orange jersey. Folks up the road in Jarrell, though, will be happy to let Dodgers fans know that Cooper looks good in blue.
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".
