“Who needs a bowl when you’ve got a Bucket? !”That’s what I would post on Facebook for all my Purdue friends to read when Indiana would win a Bucket game to finish with four or five wins that season. For an excruciatingly long period of time, the Bucket was the closest thing Indiana had to a bowl game in a given year. The same could be said for the Boilermakers as they navigated the post-Tiller fog. But not this year. This year the Bucket is a ticket.
It’s finally here! The worst rivalry in the Big Ten! PLEASE DON’T EMAIL ME THREATS. Indiana, despite all the hand-wringing, is in the exact same position they were in last year: beat Rutger, beat Purdue- go to a bowl game. That’s a much taller task than it was a year ago. Last year, the Scarlet Knights clocked in at 114th in S&P+ (they’re 96th now) and Purdue was 105th (now 43rd). S&P+ gives Indiana about a 1 in 4 shot at pulling it off and a 68% chance of winning this week.
Indiana lost to Maryland! And that leaves them in the unenviable position of having to win all three of their remaining winnable games in order to make a bowl for the third straight season. This week is not one of those games.
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".
