Back in the summer, most pundits picked Michigan to lose three or four games. Now that the Wolverines have three losses — and will need their best effort of the season Saturday to avoid a fourth — meeting those expectations doesn’t feel quite right. Nothing, really. Not if we’re focusing on just this season. The Wolverines are young on defense, lost most of their skill players, and half of its offensive line. They're working on their third quarterback.
"No man is rich enough to buy back his past." Oscar Wilde, the Irish poet and playwright, wasn't wrong. You can't change what's already happened. For decades, Michigan-Ohio State was the preeminent rivalry in college football. Not because of lore or mythology, but because of reality. Seasons and championships hinged on a game that mattered. Regardless of each team's path, the outcome of "The Game" truly seemed to be up in the air on an annual basis.
Michigan's reached the midway point of Ohio State week and its quarterback situation remains unclear. Passing game coordinator Pep Hamilton told reporters Wednesday that redshirt freshman quarterback Brandon Peters is still in concussion protocol and fourth-year junior Wilton Speight is still only practicing in a non-contact capacity. Peters, who has started the team's last three games, was knocked out after a hit at Wisconsin in the third quarter last week.
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".
