BROOKINGS – It was almost three full years ago when Skyler Flatten first made an impression on South Dakota State fans. He entered a Summit League tournament game at the Premier Center against Western Illinois, with the Jackrabbits way in front, late in the second half. Flatten took a pass from Anders Broman at the wing, circled around the top of the key, drove into the lane and hammered home a one-hand dunk that elicited a roar from the crowd.
The Augustana basketball team is in unfamiliar territory this season – the middle of the NSIC pack. The Vikings won the national championship in 2016, the second of back-to-back 30-win, NSIC championship seasons, then followed that up last year with a respectable 24-9 campaign that took them back to the Division II NCAA tournament despite the graduation of the top two scorers in school history.
It was the Minneapolis Miracle, and no one saw it coming. When the Saints converted a 43-yard field goal with under 30 seconds to play to take a 24-23 lead, it seemed like the logical next chapter in the Minnesota Vikings’ long history of kicking their fans in the gut. Yes, the Vikings dominated the first half, made Hall of Famer Drew Brees look impossibly ordinary while Case Keenum and Adam Thielen (did you guys hear that they were undrafted free agents?)
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".
