K-State guard Barry Brown and KU guard Devonte Graham both helped out at a Washburn youth basketball camp on Wednesday. They exchanged some playful (and hilarious) words on Twitter afterward. Both players found a picture taken at the camp that shows Brown staring at Graham while he speaks to the campers. Brown appears to be deep in thought while rubbing his chin. A caption contest ensued.
After receiving his scholarship release from Kansas State, Corey Sutton will transfer to Appalachian State. Sutton announced his transfer destination via Twitter on Friday. “Blessed to say I will be continuing my collegiate career at Appalachian State University,” Sutton wrote. Sutton departs for Appalachian State after K-State controversially tried to deny him a release from his scholarship, meaning he could not receive financial aid at a different school next season.
How many athletic departments had a player get selected in the NFL, MLB, NBA and WNBA drafts this year? That question was posed to me on Twitter this morning after the folks over at Reddit College Football declared 18 schools had at least one player taken in the NFL Draft, MLB Draft and NBA Draft. Kansas State joined that group when the Orlando Magic selected Wesley Iwundu with the No. 33 pick last night. Fellow Big 12 schools Oklahoma State and Texas joined them on the list.
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".
