BOSTON — UMass never got comfortable until the final minutes of the game, but when Marquis Young scored with just under 2 minutes left, it assured the Minutemen that the memory of their day at Fenway Park would be a happy one as they hung on for a 44-31 victory Saturday.“It was a really cool atmosphere to play a football game at," junior quarterback Andrew Ford said.
If Maine’s offensive formations and schemes look a little similar to UMass fans Saturday, it’s not a coincidence. Liam Coen, who is in his second season as Maine’s offensive coordinator, took a lot of his concepts from what he learned working for UMass coach Mark Whipple. “I’d say very similar in a lot of senses. I definitely took a ton of what Coach Whip does,” Coen said Monday. “We’re probably a little more run-based than they are.
AMHERST — UMass men’s soccer coach Fran O’Leary didn’t take long to find perspective amid the disappointment of his team’s regular-season ending loss to Fordham, Wednesday. With the Atlantic 10 Tournament looming, he thought playing a tight game against a strong opponent was good preparation even if it didn’t produce the desired result. “You’re always a little more focused after a loss,” he said. “When you’re playing good teams you’re under strain. If you beat a team 5-0 you can develop bad habits.
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".
