After his first-period class ended on a late November morning, Ronnie Bell received a message from his high school football coach: the University of Michigan was interested him. Bell, one of the top basketball recruits in the state of Missouri, laughed off the inquiry, certain that Josh Hood organized an elaborate ruse. But Hood was persistent — the Wolverines were calling, and it wasn’t John Beilein who was interested.
The reincarnation of the Cleveland Browns, established in 1999, has staked its claim for being the worst professional sports organization in North America. The Browns have crisscrossed the country, even going across the Atlantic to London, to display their putrid brand of football and create headlines chronicling nearly two decades of front office dysfunction. On Nov. 23, 2014, the Browns were 7-4 and in position to win the AFC North.
ANN ARBOR — In a six-day span, Michigan sent a message to its Big Ten brethren and college basketball teams throughout the country that the vexing Wolverines have remained pesky. The veterans have provided production in critical moments, the freshmen are playing an unexpected pivotal role, and underclassmen called upon for the first time have responded with enthusiasm. Dating to last Tuesday, Michigan lost to No. 5 Purdue by one point, beat No.
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".
