It's just the third week of an 18-game SEC basketball schedule and LSU first-year coach Will Wade is strategically doing everything possible to help his undersized team steal wins. Since the Tigers are guard-heavy - six of the nine players in Wade's playing rotation are 6-5 or shorter - LSU must hit open outside shots or else. Also, two of the Tigers' more accurate long-range shooters are 6-11 Duop Reath and 6-10 Aaron Epps, the only non-guards in the starting lineup.
One of the few incorrect observations made by Keith Jackson, indisputably the greatest college football announcer ever, was about himself. He once said, "This is not my stage. The stage belongs to the athletes and coaches who play the game. People don't throw down 1,000 bucks for a TV to hear me talk." Jackson, who died Friday at age 89, was correct when he said it's the athletes and coaches who play the game.
Led by a league-high six LSU players, 26 SEC underclassmen from nine league schools applied to enter the 2018 NFL Draft which takes place April 26-28 in AT&T Stadium, the home of Dallas Cowboys. Three Tigers on each side of the ball, led by defensive end/outside linebacker Arden Key and running back Derrius Guice, applied before Monday night's deadline. Seven of the underclassmen, such as Key and Guice, have been projected as first-round choices by ESPN's NFL Draft analyst Todd McShay.
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".
