There will be a trio of West Virginians on the Jackson Generals Class AA baseball affiliate of the Arizona Diamondbacks. On Thursday, former Nitro High football standout and current Generals manager J.R. House said not only has the Diamondbacks organization signed East Fairmont native David Carpenter, but ex-Nitro pitcher J.R. Bradley as well. “We’re going to be hooting and hollering ‘Country Roads’ in the locker room,” House laughed.
The official press release came from WVU at 3:42 p.m. on Monday. Charleston native James Long had known the news before that. Yet on Wednesday afternoon the former Mountaineer basketball walk-on’s heart was still racing over the announcement he’s joined coach Bob Huggins’ staff as an assistant director of basketball operations. “I still haven’t wrapped my mind around it,” Long said. “I’m blown away.”It’s quite a story. For a while, Long was the very definition of basketball journeyman.
Tickets remain on sale for WVU’s Sept. 3 football opener at FedExField in Landover, Maryland, against Virginia Tech. Yet the Mountaineers have sold out their game allotment. The Hokies have sold out their allotment. And that’s making Russ Potts Productions, the game promoter, very happy. “We expect it to be a full house or sellout,” said RPP representative Zach Franz on Tuesday. The game was moved from its original date to a 7:30 p.m. Sunday start to accommodate ABC, which will televise the 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".
