IOWA CITY, Ia. — The life of a football coach can be hectic, so Richard Sanchez developed a ritual last season. Each day at noon, his alarm would ring, a reminder that it was time to have lunch with — and learn from — Kevin Spencer. Sanchez, the head coach at powerhouse St. Augustine High School in San Diego, Calif., didn’t want to pass up any chance to talk with a guy who’d spent a quarter-century on NFL sidelines. And Spencer didn’t disappoint.
Patrick Downey, whose tumultuous wrestling career at Iowa State came to an end in February after one All-American season and a series of churlish tweets, is planning to join the Hawkeyes. Trackwrestling broke the news Thursday night, reporting Downey plans to move to Iowa City this weekend. “I approach it like my life depends on it,” Downey told Trackwrestling's Andy Hamilton. “It’s all or nothing. I only have one more crack at accomplishing my goal."
IOWA CITY, Ia. — Manny Rugamba shows all the signs of being Iowa’s next star cornerback. Fearlessness. A knack for the football. An unshakeable belief in himself. So why all the talk about the need for humility? “He made some really big plays in a big game at critical times. Maybe as big a play as we've had in the season, quite frankly,” Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz told reporters on media day, referencing Rugamba’s crucial interception in a 14-13 victory over Michigan last season.
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".
