The Tar Heels have played a few decent teams close (California, Louisville, and UVA), but have largely been beat up on by conference foes. Between the off field issues and talent loss from last year UNC is simply not in a place to compete in the ACC. The only way the Hokies drop this game is if they play four full sloppy quarters. I don't expect any fireworks like we saw against ECU, but I also don't expect VT to be as flat as they were against BC.
It was an absolutely gorgeous day in Blacksburg, as the Virginia Tech Hokies entertained the North Carolina Tar Heels. The Hokies started slow, and the defense put Virginia Tech on the board for the first time in the game. DT, Ricky Walker, scooped up a fumble and rumbled 12 yards to give the Hokies a 7-0 lead. Greg Stroman continued his amazing special teams performance. Stroman took a punt 91 yards for a score, and Beamer Ball was alive and well in Blacksburg.
For better or worse, the college football season is half over for many of the teams in the A.C.C. The league is in the embryonic stages of becoming the most dominant conference in the country, and we wonder which team’s fan base is most disappointed thus far. Where to begin? The ‘Noles got ran over by Nick and the Bama boys, and have stumbled out of the gate for Jimbo Fisher.
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".
