San Diego State players were selected to a conference-best four positions on the all-Mountain West team announced Tuesday morning during the conference’s media days event. SDSU senior Rashaad Penny made the team at two positions — running back and kick returner — and was joined by tight end David Wells and place-kicker John Baron. Penny rushed for 1,018 yards and 11 touchdowns last season as the backup to the record-breaking D.J. Pumphrey.
San Diego State lost 12 starters — including the nation’s career rushing leader — from last season’s team. Apparently, it's still not enough to bring the Aztecs back to the pack in the West Division of the Mountain West. For the second straight year, SDSU was a unanimous pick to win the West, receiving all 28 first-place votes in a preseason poll announced Tuesday by the conference at its annual media days event. TCU (2010) is the only other unanimous pick in the Mountain West's 19-year history.
A handful of San Diego State football players have been receiving preseason attention. It’s no surprise that most of the notice has gone to senior running Rashaad Penny, who is on watch lists for the Walter Camp Player of the Year Award, Maxwell Award (college player of the year) and Paul Hornung Award (most versatile player). Penny is the third SDSU player to make the Walter Camp list, following Ronnie Hillman and D.J. Pumphrey, who was a semifinalist last year for the award.
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".
