Syracuse, N.Y. -- A common line of questioning posed to the Syracuse Orange last week at ACC media days centered around the lack of respect it sees in the conference. Reporters cited empty camera tripods in the back of the main press room and myriad preseason magazines that listed SU near the bottom of the ACC. So, it would've been shocking to see the conference's media break rank when it was time to predict its own order of finish this year.
Xavier High School (Conn.) quarterback Will Levis participated in a camp Friday night at Penn State and announced his decision Saturday morning. He had camped at Syracuse last month and solidified his spot near the top of the Orange's recruiting board. Levis' recruitment started taking off in the spring, when he ran a 4.80-second 40-yard dash, a 4.10-second shuttle and scored the highest SPARQ score out of an impressive roster of campers at a clinic in New Jersey.
Charlotte, N.C. -- Media days offer a chance to have a little fun along with the football talk. With season 7 of Game of Thrones starting on Sunday, Syracuse football head coach Dino Babers and linebacker Zaire Franklin took some time to discuss the popular HBO show on Thursday at ACC media day. Check out who Franklin thinks will sit on the Iron Throne and who will die this season. Also see who is one of Dino Babers' favorite characters -- even if he has some trouble with the names.
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".
