Bryan Collins said on Tuesday he was still waiting for LIU Post “to put together that almost perfect game.”Enter Saturday’s 70-21 thrashing of host American International, in which the Pioneers scored a touchdown on 10 of their 12 possessions, putting an emphatic end to the coach’s wait. “This was definitely the kind of game we’ve been looking for,” Collins said.
Coming off two consecutive losses for the first time since 2014, LIU Post entered Saturday in unfamiliar territory. And quarterback Yianni Gavalas helped navigate the Pioneers back to their winning ways. Gavalas completed 19 of 31 passes for 375 yards, three touchdowns and an interception to end the Pioneers’ recent slide in a 52-35 homecoming victory over rival Southern Connecticut State.
LIU Post is not used to losing streaks. Before this season, the Pioneers had lost back-to-back football games only once since 2014, and coach Brian Collins believes the team can stop its current two-game skid Saturday against 1-3 Southern Connecticut State. Collins said the key is quarterback Yianni Gavalas, a graduate student from Manhasset. “I think he’s prepared to lead us to victory,” Collins 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 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".
