D.J. Reed is perhaps the best cornerback in the Big 12. The Kansas State standout was first-team all-conference by a vote of the head coaches last season, and the media made him a preseason all-Big 12 pick this season. He's made preseason watch lists for the Thorpe, Nagurski and Bednarik awards, and he's just a junior. But three years ago, he was redshirting at Fresno State. Two years ago, he was getting ready for a junior college season.
When Tennessee quarterback Woodrow Lowe III committed to West Virginia on July 11, that ended the pursuit of passers in the 2018 class. Lowe was the Mountaineers' top target, and Lowe wasn't shy about why he picked them and offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach Jake Spavital, telling EerSports.com he was intrigued by "the success he has had with quarterbacks."
WVU coach Dana Holgorsen and Oklahoma State coach Mike Gundy are, of course, old friends. Gundy hired Holgorsen to be his offensive coordinator in 2010 when Gundy was coming off two 9-4 seasons and two bowl losses and still trying to find his footing and invigorate his offense in the Big 12. The Cowboys went 11-2 that season and won the Alamo Bowl. They led the nation in total offense, finished No. 2 in passing offense and No. 3 in points per game.
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".
