Last week in this space, we wrote that recent coaching casualties in the SEC had quieted the talk about Kevin Sumlin’s job status at Texas A&M. Well, a lot can happen in a few days. With speculation on their coach’s future as a backdrop, the Texas A&M Aggies will visit Tiger Stadium to face LSU on Saturday (7:30 p.m. ET, SECN). Here are five things you should know about the Texas A&M-LSU matchup:Nick Starkel was steady, if not spectacular, in A&M’s win against Ole Miss last week.
Week 12 provided a rarity in college football — a quiet week in The Associated Press top 10. Oklahoma State, ranked No. 10 in the official poll last week, was the only team that fell this past weekend. As a result, the top of the poll looks much like it did in this space last Monday. We read through the 12th in-season AP Top 25 poll of the year and made the following changes:First teams out: Boise State (-1), Iowa State (No. 27) and Michigan (No.
Good scheduling is an often overlooked part of building a quality college football program. Both Alabama and Auburn selected ideal opponents for the week before the Iron Bowl, and as a result, both Jalen Hurts and Jarrett Stidham will enter the rivalry game on a high note.
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".
