AMES, Ia. – Tom Herman maybe had a premonition back when he was running Iowa State’s offense, back when he was the play-calling coordinator for two of the biggest victories in Cyclones' history. Sometime while recruiting during the 2011 season, he ran across a dominating quarterback at Ankeny High School named Joel Lanning. “Joel was a tough son of a gun,” Herman once told me. “He was an uber competitor.
Not much surprises me anymore, but ... I get it when someone says he would be a wonderful fit to lead an athletics department with as many problems right now as he’s had during his entire 12-plus years as a Cyclone. Again, not much surprises me anymore in this great world of college athletics in which we live, but ...Pollard has Big Ten roots; he was the deputy AD at Wisconsin before replacing Bruce Van De Velde at Iowa State in 2005, so sure, I see why some people connect dots.
If you’re an Iowa State basketball fan planning to attend the Nov. 16-19 Puerto Rico Tip-Off Tournament in Fajardo ...... And if you haven’t yet purchased your plane ticket ...There’s not been an assessment yet on whether the devastation from Hurricane Maria will force the eight-team tournament to be moved. “Our events team is monitoring the situation and (Maria’s) impact on the area,” ESPN spokesperson Anna Negron wrote in a text to The Register on Thursday.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
