Navy had to make a crucial, perhaps game-saving, stop on a fourth-and-1 against Tulane Sept. 9. The Midshipmen were clinging to a 23-21 lead in the fourth quarter, and the Green Wave gambled on their own 36-yard line to extend a drive. Tulane backup quarterback Johnathan Brantley handed the ball off to 6-foot-1, 225-point running back Darius Bradwell, who attempted to barrel through the middle of the line.
Navy quarterback Zach Abey spent hours during the summer doing homework assigned by offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Ivin Jasper. Abey is hoping the extra work will enable him to take full control of the Midshipmen's triple-option offense this fall. "Coach Jasper, with all of the tests, forced me to look back into film to pick out all of the minor details," Abey said. "It gave me a chance to look inside Coach Jasper's mind.
Maj. Tom O'Brien is used to pressure. He was a three-year starting defensive end for Navy from 1968-1970, he served two tours in the Marines and coached football for 40 years. But O'Brien said he still gets pregame jitters in the broadcast booth. O'Brien has worked as a color analyst for ESPN 3 for the past two years, but he will take over as the radio analyst for Navy football in 2017.
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".
