Penn State running back Saquon Barkley is a finalist for two major college football awards, including one as player of the year. Barkley, a junior from Whitehall High School, was named a finalist for the Maxwell Award as the nation’s top player and the Doak Walker Award as the nation’s top running back. In addition, Mike Gesicki is a finalist for the Mackey Award, given to the nation’s top tight end. The winners will be announced Dec. 7 in Atlanta during ESPN’s College Football Awards Show.
Penn State coach James Franklin said Tuesday that he considered it “inappropriate” to ask Saquon Barkley whether he would play in the bowl game. Following Penn State’s 56-44 win over Nebraska last Saturday, Barkley said that he intends to play in the team’s bowl game. At his weekly press conference, Franklin noted in his opening statement that he did not agree with the question.
When teammate Mike Gesicki called him an “all-American decoy,” Penn State quarterback Tommy Stevens joked that he probably should have been angry. Then Stevens concluded Gesicki said that “because I stole a couple of his touchdowns.”“If there's anybody on the team that I'd be happy with having two of my touchdown catches,” Gesicki said later, “it would be Tommy.”As Penn State’s season winds down, glances to the team’s future naturally will heat up. Stevens, the Lions’ gifted No.
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".
