After West Virginia fell to Virginia Tech in the season opener, there weren’t a lot of ill feelings about the Mountaineers. In fact, most within the WVU camp were rather upbeat. The feeling, though, wasn’t exactly the same coming off a West Virginia win. Heading into an off week, WVU coaches filed a few complaints even though the Mountaineers left Lawrence, Kansas, with a 56-34 Big 12 road win at Memorial Stadium.
Many forget Will Grier’s first play as West Virginia University’s quarterback. On a first-and-10 situation from WVU’s own 25, Grier threw a post pattern pass to Ka’Raun White for 32 yards against Virginia Tech. The problem for Grier: The officials reviewed the play and ruled it incomplete. Yet it was a harbinger for WVU fans and opponents. Grier, the transfer from Florida, would and will be throwing deep in 2017.
— West Virginia’s players had to have entered their first Big 12 game of the season feeling pretty good about themselves. The Mountaineers played No. 13 Virginia Tech even before falling and then blew out the candles on their two cupcakes of East Carolina and Delaware State. Today, however, WVU is reeling a bit after allowing Kansas back Khalil Herbert, a sophomore, to post a Mountaineer record 291 rushing yards Saturday after averaging just 49 in the Jayhawks’ first three games.
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".
