The world will little note nor long remember what happened Saturday in Tuscaloosa and Auburn. Alabama celebrated Senior Day with a 56-0 walk past Mercer. Auburn eventually chewed up its Amen Corner sandwich game against Louisiana Monroe 42-14. Let's just say it was a good day to cut the grass. But next Saturday? All eyes locally and nationally will be in or on Jordan-Hare Stadium. Everything will be on the line for both teams just as it was in 2013. That Mother of All Iron Bowls is about to have a son.
No one in the traveling party thinks this way, but let's be honest. UAB is not supposed to beat Florida. There's a good chance it'll happen, but the Blazers are not supposed to walk into the Swamp, where the myth says only Gators get out alive, and strut away with a victory. It doesn't matter that UAB is 7-3 overall and 5-2 in Conference USA, one win away from a school record for victories in a season, with five wins in its last six games.
Said it before, but it bears repeating as the #Grumors reach critical mass. SEC football programs would be much better off if they would stop trying to hire another Nick Saban. There's only one of those. So here's a little friendly advice for our neighbors to the north whose favorite color is dreamsicle orange. Dream on, Vols for Life, but if your Jon Gruden fantasy were to happen, he wouldn't be even a reasonable facsimile.
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".
