Matt Patricia will be the latest in a long line of head coaches attempting to fix the Lions. His background: A hotshot defensive coordinator for a dynasty, the New England Patriots. The fact Patricia has been mentored by Bill Belichick can viewed two ways. Belichick is arguably the greatest NFL coach of all-time. Some of it, beyond an affinity for hoodies, must have rubbed off, right? Yet, Belichick’s disciples, especially from the Patriots, generally haven’t had similar success.
The Pistons should be sitting pretty. They’re a little above .500, and only a few games from the 4th-seed in the Eastern Conference, with the first-round home-court playoff advantage and lesser opponent it would bring. Instead, a cloud hovered above not-even-half-full, would-somebody-please-turn-up-the-heat Little Caesars Arena Monday. The Pistons were inexplicably blown out by the floundering Charlotte Hornets.
If it were a pickup game, Michigan State would have beaten Michigan by 20 points Saturday. The fact the Wolverines upended the Spartans 82-72 in East Lansing is a credit to Wolverines’ coach John Beilein, and an indictment of MSU’s legend Tom Izzo. What else could it be other than coaching? It was supposed to be different this season for Izzo after the sensational Miles Bridges shunned the NBA Draft to return, and Spartans added to their collection of 4- and 5-star talent.
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".
