As the J.C. Penney-sponsored video production team scoured the country looking for their next “Great Big Story,” Eli Brooks slipped into view. Michigan basketball’s freshman guard was at the end of his senior year of high school and the film crew from Penney’s inspirational video series settled on Brooks’ connection with his community. That’s how Brooks and his father, James, ended up being featured in the national campaign.
Michigan's 2018 recruiting class is growing without a new commitment. Clarkston forward Taylor Currie, who committed to the Wolverines on June 15, will reclassify to the 2018 class, his father, Jason, told the Free Press. Currie, a 6 feet 8, 200-pound power forward, was offered on the first day U-M coach John Beilein reaches out to player at the end of the sophomore year and he immediately accepted as the first and only member of the 2019 class.
Michigan football coach Jim Harbaugh thrives on competition and anytime he can put his players in that situation he’ll figure it out. That’s how the idea of the Michigan football pre-spring combine originated. And it offered the chance to see who was the most athletic. Rashan Gary, Chris Evans and Donovan Peoples-Jones impressed, as expected. But on the offensive line, the clear standout was redshirt sophomore Jon Runyan Jr.“Everybody thinks that’s my coming out party,” Runyan said last week.
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".
