Have Michigan football questions? We’ve got answers. Join us every Thursday for the Land of 10 Michigan mailbag to talk all things Wolverines. This week, we discuss the possibility of Ole Miss quarterback Shea Patterson transferring to Michigan, the Wolverines’ potential NFL draft picks in the spring and if Tarik Black will be available for the Outback Bowl. The quarterback position wasn’t as much of a trouble spot as the offensive line was — those two entities go hand-in-hand.
ANN ARBOR, Mich. — This will be a marriage of compromise between Shea Patterson and the Michigan offense. Patterson announced Monday that he will transfer to Michigan for the spring semester. The 6-foot-2, 203-pound quarterback spent the 2016 and 2017 seasons at Mississippi, where he threw for 23 touchdowns and more than 3,100 yards in 10 games. Patterson is expected to contend for Michigan’s starting job, and is expected to file a waiver with the NCAA in attempt to play next season.
ANN ARBOR, Mich. — Shea Patterson threw 2 interceptions in his first game as a high school sophomore. It would have been enough evidence for a coach to pull his starting quarterback, and John H. Bachman Sr. did just that in the fall of 2013 at Calvary Baptist Academy in Shreveport, La. It was the first time a coach had pulled Patterson from a game. But the Calvary Baptist staff didn’t give up on the sophomore.
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".
