You might have noticed, the Atlantic Ten conference is up for grabs. Not first place. Rhode Island was picked to win the A-10, is undefeated in the A-10, and looks likely to lock up an NCAA at-large spot before the A-10 tournament. After this weekend’s play, Drexel Hill’s favorite bracketologist, Joe Lunardi, had the Rams 25th overall, solidly in the NCAA field. Everybody else? They need to win that tournament, which this year is in Washington.
By the end of the first half, Lincoln Financial Field was already delirious, and some facts had become obvious. Among Minnesota’s numerous problems in Sunday’s NFC Championship game, the vaunted Vikings defense couldn’t figure out a way to deal with Eagles wide receiver Alshon Jeffery or tight end Zach Ertz. The first sustained Eagles drive of the evening included five completed Nick Foles passes. The first was to Jeffery, the next two to Ertz, another to Jeffery, the last to Ertz.
As last season ended, St. Joseph’s basketball coach Phil Martelli, remarking about the uncertainty of this season, mentioned Pierfrancesco “Checco” Oliva, wondering who could remember what kind of game Oliva had, after he sat out his sophomore season with a chronic knee condition. His game? Still evolving, in all sorts of interesting ways.
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".
