NORMAN—Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield added another honor to his list Thursday. Mayfield was named the winner of the Manning Award, the lone quarterback award that takes into consideration bowl performances. The award was created by the Sugar Bowl to honor the college football accomplishments of Archie, Peyton and Eli Manning. The award is voted on by a panel that includes the three Mannings, and local and national media. Mayfield is OU's first Manning Award winner.
NORMAN—Baker Mayfield isn't over it, not by a long shot. He says he still has nightmares over his performance in the Rose Bowl, where Oklahoma gave up a big first-half lead, losing to Georgia and ending Mayfield's Sooners career. “The worst part about it is that I can't redo it,” Mayfield said Thursday. “So for me, it's been about focusing moving forward.”Mayfield took a bit of time to look back, though, as he was named the winner of the Manning Award on Thursday.
Entering the NFL Draft, Baker Mayfield might be a little bit more of a sensation than he was coming out of Lake Travis High School. There, he was passed over by virtually every Division I school for a scholarship and wound up walking on at first Texas Tech and then Oklahoma. Now, at least, he's a known commodity. But Mayfield is still taking perceived slights and turning them into fuel.
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".
