Finally, the last week of the regular season of my SEC picks, my final chance before the bowls to at least even my record against the spread. My 4-3 showing against the spread last week edged me to 42-44 for the year while going 8-1 straight up improving me to 85-17. It's Rival Week in the SEC, especially with the four non-conference in-state battles. Onward to week 13 that starts tonight. All times listed are CT and all games are Saturday unless noted.
College football's crazy season - the hiring and firing of head coaches - is in the starting gate. Just in the SEC, there could be as many as five vacancies or more once the coaching carousel starts spinning. But this year, a huge monkey wrench has been tossed into the anticipated mess.
It's the last SEC teleconference of the season and it could be the end of the road for five league coaches. Interim coaches Randy Shannon of Florida, Brady Hoke of Tennessee and Matt Luke of Ole Miss will likely not be hired. A Houston Chronicle report said that Texas A&M coach Kevin Sumlin will be fired after Saturday's game at LSU. Also, Arkansas coach Bret Bielema will likely be fired. This week's final round of games starts with Ole Miss at No.
This could have all been avoided by not getting caught cheating. As many times as Ole Miss has been on probation -- 3 -- with No. 4 (as many as MSU has lifetime) on deck, it should have perfected its craft by now. https://t.co/CYhbJ4LZQ6
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".
