It might sound kind of strange, but the first Texas football coach to ever reach 300 wins at the 5A level was dreading the biggest game of the season. It was Nov. 2003, and Arlington Lamar was facing rival Arlington in the regular-season finale to decide the district championship. Vikings coach Eddy Peach, who — at the time — was the only football coach in the history of Lamar, relished this type of situation — under normal circumstances. These circumstances, though, were anything but normal.
When College Station was starting its football program, coach Steve Huff and his staff visited Aledo as a model of how to build a winning program. The Cougars, in their fourth season of UIL competition, are now a model program in their own right. College Station outlasted Aledo 20-19 on Saturday afternoon in front 28,163 at AT&T Stadium to win the 5A Division II state championship. It’s the first state title for the Cougars (14-2) and the first loss for the Bearcats (15-1) in 32 games.
Halftime adjustments can play a pivotal role in a playoff game. But the 1983 Daingerfield Tigers weren’t looking to shake things up at intermission of the 3A state championship game. The East Texas power smothered opponents with a remarkable consistency that no team has since come close to matching. The Tigers plastered Sweeny 42-0 in Waco on a frosty December night to cap a 16-0 season in which Daingerfield outscored opponents 631-8.
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".
