The 2018 Super Bowl between the New England Patriots and the Philadelphia Eagles will kickoff on Sunday, Feb. 5 at 6:30 p.m. ET. With just under two weeks to go until the big game, let’s take a look at where players on both teams played their college football. Below are the totals for each team (including injured reserved, practice squads, and so forth, because those players helped their teams get here and are in line to get rings). Colleges care about this stuff even more than fans do.
The NCAA’s Division II has expanded its reach to Mexico, the vote passing on Saturday which allows colleges to now apply for membership. Members that want to be approved have to meet DII standards in order to join, as reported by ABC News. While no Mexican schools have applied yet, those that will will have to go through a provisional period that lasts three years before joining fully.
Alabama quarterback Jalen Hurts is rocking a bit of a new look these days. On Sunday, Hurts posted a picture of his new hairdo, which is now without the dreadlocks he usually rocked for two seasons in Tuscaloosa. Here’s what his hair previously looked like — it’s definitely a different look than what Alabama fans have been used to.
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".
