The 2017 offseason proved to be one of the most chaotic in league history, with a slate of stars jettisoning their former teams for greener pastures. Kyrie Irving forced his way to Boston, Paul George was traded to Oklahoma City and Chris Paul maneuvered his way to Houston, leaving each player’s former team in a precarious position, either needing to rebuild or reload on the fly. There could be similar big-name movement next offseason.
AUSTIN, Texas — San Jose State slid under .500 on the season once again on Saturday, falling to the Texas Longhorns 56-0 at Darrell K Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium. The Spartans were overmatched in the interior throughout the game, struggling to sustain drives on offense while getting shredded by the Longhorns’ running game for a majority of the afternoon. While the Spartans’ defense held Texas in check for most of the first quarter, their offense sputtered on three consecutive drives.
The Oakland Raiders, who last year had their first winning season since 2002, have 7-to-1 odds of winning the NFL’s title game, according to Wynn Las Vegas. The only team with better odds is the New England Patriots at 7 to 2. Oakland opened at 14 to 1, but heavy betting on the team has driven down the odds, said Wynn’s sports book director Johnny Avello. “The Raiders have quite a following, not just in Oakland, but down here in Las Vegas, especially as they’ll be our home team,” Avello said.
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".
