SMU head coach Chad Morris and some of his assistants hit the practice field on Tuesday in 1980s-era coaches gear – including the short shorts. The throwback look was for a reason, as the last time SMU started the season 3-0 was in 1984. The Mustangs are currently 2-0 and have a big obstacle to get to 3-0 – crosstown rival and AP No. 20 TCU. SMU is embracing the challenge while also acknowledging that it’s been decades since the program has been in a position to begin a season so successfully.
SMU is offering Hurricane Harvey evacuees free tickets and concessions for Saturday night’s season opener on The Hilltop. The school said those affected by the storm can call 214-SMU-GAME or use an online form to request tickets and vouchers for hot dogs and soda. SMU hosts Stephen F. Austin on Saturday at 6 p.m. at Ford Stadium. The game had already been billed as a “Salute To Our Heroes” and will honor all active military members and veterans.
The Texas Rangers will donate 10 percent of ticket sales from this upcoming weekend’s series to Harvey relief efforts. The organization made the announcement Wednesday, saying the donation would include all previously sold tickets for the Friday through Sunday series at Globe Life Park against the Los Angeles Angels. Ten percent of all sales from ballpark gift shops, merchandise stores and concession stands will also be donated to the Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund.
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".
