The Mississippi Sports Hall of Fame and Museum will celebrate one of the biggest upsets in Mississippi football history on Oct. 12, 40 years and 25 days after it happened. On Sept. 17, 1977, 21-point underdog Ole Miss defeated eventual national champion Notre Dame 20-13 at Mississippi Veterans Memorial Stadium on a sweltering, summer-like afternoon.
Question: Can football be made less violent and safer without changing the nature of the game? Don’t take it from me. Listen to Steve Shaw, coordinator of officials for the SEC and NCAA secretary-rules editor for football. “The targeting rule is working,” Shaw said Wednesday in a telephone interview from the SEC’s Birmingham office. “In fact, it is working very well. I think if you watch football closely, you have seen player behavior change over the past few seasons. I know I have.
So, let’s say LSU leads Mississippi State 14-0 with 10 minutes to go at Scott Field this Saturday night. Let’s say the Tigers face fourth down and one yard to go at midfield. What would Ed Orgeron, the man LSU pays $3.5 million a year to make such decisions, do? “I’m punting,” Orgeron told reporters Monday in Baton Rouge. “I want to keep this job.”But that’s not what Orgeron did 10 years ago when he faced the same situation, in the same stadium, as the Ole Miss coach. Orgeron went for it.
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".
