While sitting on the couch a couple of years ago with his wife, Rebecca, Oklahoma men’s golf coach Ryan Hybl came up with a potential slogan for the 2016-17 season. “I didn’t just view it as a tagline,” Hybl explained. “I was always talking to our guys about, ‘You know what, why not us? You guys work your tails off. This is why you guys came to Oklahoma. It is our time. Let’s go show everybody what we can do.
Within minutes after her team repeated as national champions at the Women’s College World Series last season, Oklahoma softball coach Patty Gasso was asked about the chances of a three-peat. Gasso smiled, but didn’t want to discuss the prospect of capturing three straight national titles. Eight months later, the NFCA Hall of Fame coach still de-emphasizes the matter with the 2018 season ready to commence on Friday.
There they stood last summer, Rex and Rob Ryan, each with a shovel in his hand while working on their father's farm in Lawrenceburg, Ky. If ever there was an opportunity for the Bedlam Brothers to settle their differences, this was it. "Careful, Rob," Rex said a half-dozen times in a single afternoon, guarding his younger twin's safety amidst the perils of Buddy Ryan's 176 acres. "Heads up, Rex," Rob said as he flung a shovelful of rocks past his older brother's right ear.
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".
