Iowa got a chance to show off their newly-renovated field in front of 12,000 fans at Saturday's Kids Day. But for the Hawkeyes, the live action was just as valuable, and it gave Iowa a chance to get a closer look at the quarterback battle between Nathan Stanley and Tyler Wiegers. After 12 practices, the QB question is still unanswered. Stanley said at Media Day that both him and Wiegers are simply trying to get better. On Saturday, Stanley threw three touchdown passes, while Wiegers had none.
The Sioux City Stampede's first season as a franchise was in 2014. The team has gone to the playoffs every year, and has made three title games. But Saturday night, the Herd notched the final feather in their cap. Sioux City beat Des Moines, 43-12, to win their first ever Midwest Football Alliance championship down in Omaha. The Stampede stuffed the stat sheet, with 370 yards of total offense. Sioux City also had 7 interceptions.
We're now less than two weeks from opening night of the high school football season in the tri-state area. The Sioux City metro schools had a combined record of 25-38 in 2016. Saturday's Metro Media Day gave us a preview of all seven squads. Bishop Heelan was 6-3 last year, but, under the new Iowa postseason format, the Crusaders fell just short of the 3A playoffs. Head coach Jerry Steffen will no longer be calling the offensive plays, as Heelan will play on FieldTurf for the first time.
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".
