If anybody knows anything about being at Florida State forever, it's former coach Bobby Bowden. The legendary coach spent from 1976 to 2009 in Tallahassee as the coach of the Seminoles. Bowden joined me and Lee Shirvanian on Friday during "The Opening Kickoff" on WNSP-FM 105.5 in Mobile, Alabama, to discuss many topics, including the future of Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher after the FSU president said Fisher would be there forever. "A coach likes that backing," Bowden said Friday.
Steve Spurrier said Florida's next football coach is currently with a team. This nugget of information comes just days after reports Florida officials have begun to "vet" former Oregon coach Chip Kelly as a candidate. "The (next UF) coach is with his team now," Spurrier told FootballScoop, via College Football Talk. "The coach we're going to hire is probably, I would almost 100 percent say is coaching his team today, this weekend, and through the end of the season, and maybe through the bowl game."
If it were any other coach, the Florida Atlantic Owls might not be a story this year. But it isn't another coach. It's Lane Kiffin. The former Alabama offensive coordinator has FAU at 7-3, and the Owls can clinch the right to host the C-USA title game if it beats Florida International on Saturday. Chris Low of ESPN spent some time with Kiffin and picked his brain on a number of things, including his coaching stops, Nick Saban and trolling on Twitter.
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".
