STANFORD — Bryce Love’s “jet streak” came to an end last Friday. Love had previously played in eight games this season, and in all eight he recorded a run of 50 yards or more. It was an NCAA first. Love didn’t get there against Washington, though he did break a 30-yarder. Ultimately, he had to console himself with 166 yards and three touchdowns in Stanford’s 30-22 upset victory against the then-No. 9 Huskies. Disappointing? His running backs coach thought it was one of Love’s best games of the season.
I didn’t catch Ben McAdoo’s postgame press conference Sunday afternoon. I was on the other side of Levi’s Stadium, talking to happy, relieved 49ers. But I watched video of his give-and-take. McAdoo, the New York Giants head coach, looks and sounds like the manager of a not-tidy transmission shop, and he’s really sorry but that clutch pressure plate just isn’t gonna get here by Tuesday. He seemed unprepared for his media Q&A, just as his team had seemed unprepared for the then-0-and-9 49ers.
This is a column that seemed destined never to happen. Wouldn’t it be interesting, I wondered a year and a half ago, to gather together Warriors head coach Steve Kerr, his trusted assistant Bruce “Q” Fraser, longtime KNBR sports-radio personality Tom Tolbert and respected Santa Rosa Junior College men’s basketball coach Craig McMillan to recount their days in the desert?
Testy interview on 95.7 with Raiders coach Jack Del Rio, who told Damon Bruce: "I’m not sure what kind of show you want to have today, but I’m doing the best I can to talk about our football team, and it sounds like you want to try and pin it on somebody."
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".
