As Texas Southern University prepares for the 2017 season the buzz word for the campaign has to be “improvement.” Head coach Mike Haywood and staff face a formidable incline as they continue to rebuild the Tiger program. Haywood’s Tigers were 4-7 overall, 4-5 in SWAC play in his debut season (2016). The Tigers were a tough out in all of their losses last season, especially in conference play and showed the type of resolve that gives hope for the future.
The University of Houston Cougars have gone 22-5 over the previous two years with Tom Herman at the helm. Herman’s reward was a promotion to Austin to coach the Longhorns. In stepped offensive coordinator and Texas ex Major Applewhite to guide the Cougars’ fortunes for the next five years. The H-Town takeover established by Herman is in full effect, but Applewhite will have to keep the momentum going as the Coogs rebuild on the fly in 2017.
It’s a fact that Prairie View A&M University head football coach Willie Simmons is one of the top young coaching minds in the SWAC. Simmons’ coaching acumen was first put on display as the offensive coordinator at Alcorn State University. Over a three-year period he helped turn the Braves into one of the FCS’s top offenses, winning the 2014 SWAC and SBN Black College National Championships.
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".
