On Saturday, the Virginia Tech Hokies will face the number eight ranked Kentucky Wildcats. The Wildcats are favored in the desert, but the Hokies are the fans’ choice. What is going to happen? It is truly a David and Goliath story. Kentucky is the home of the “one and done”. Virginia Tech is the home of “He’s a good player under the right system.” It breaks down into some serious Star Wars stuff. It’s the good versus the dark side.
As the Camping World Bowl inches closer, I thought it would be interesting to look at the history between the two clubs. Believe it or not, the Virginia Tech Hokies and the Oklahoma State Cowboys have played twice before. In 1972, Virginia Tech defeated the Cowboys in a squeaker, 34-32. Before you get all cocky, the Pokes beat the Hokies in 1971, 24-16. The Camping World Bowl will be the rubber match in a battle of top 25 teams. Historically, both programs match up pretty evenly.
Nothing like heading south for the winter. I love this bowl game for the Virginia Tech Hokies, because it combines my love of college football and Disney World. If you are interested in tickets, they are very affordable, especially early. I found tickets for as low as $35 on the official site, and you could sit first row on the fifty for $350. That’s a great value for any bowl game, especially one featuring two top 25 teams.
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".
