By Phil Hecken & The Cast and Crew of the Sunday Morning Uni Watch Follow @PhilHeckenAh…USC vs. UCLA — always the best looking game of the year. And yesterday didn’t disappoint. In fact, I happen to think this game looked better than the past several years due to UA taking over the contract from adidas, who had the trademark treadmark unis, and used to truncate the classic UCLA shoulder loops (although they did remedy that problem in recent vintage).
We made it! Today we will look at (and vote upon) our finalists for our latest contest — to reimagine an XFL jersey if the team (and league) were still in existence today. All the details for the contest are here, and if you missed it, the first set of entries are here and the second set are here. I’d like to again thank our partner, Steve Rosenbeck of Garb Athletics for providing the winner of the contest (as selected by you, the readers) with a custom jersey based upon the winner’s submission.
By Phil Hecken and the SMUW crew Follow @PhilHeckenMost schools who chose to play dress up this weekend went the camopander/GI Joevember/’MURICA route, but not erstwhile Colorado State. Nay, they eschewed the patriotic gestures and instead wrapped themselves in the flag. The Colorado State flag, that is — here, this is the flag of the State of Colorado.
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".
