Southern Utah head coach Demario Warren knew his team was going to win last Saturday against Northern Arizona. That knowledge didn’t come from how the T-Birds prepared or what he saw the Lumberjacks doing on film. No, it came from a conversation he had the day before the game. Warren was in athletic director Andrew Parrish’s office and was told Parrish’s 1-year-old daughter, Harper, was coming to the game. That’s all Warren needed to know. After that, it was game over.
Mike Needham should be pretty used to this honor by now. On Tuesday, the Southern Utah senior was named to all-Big Sky first team. It’s the third year in a row SUU's star linebacker has earned first-team honors. Needham wasn’t the only Thunderbird to garner all-conference honors — not by a long shot. SUU had 22 players earn all-Big Sky recognition on Tuesday. Center Zach Larsen, corner Jarmaine Doubs and defensive tackle Anu Pole’o joined Needham on the first team.
Without even playing a game, Southern Utah has already made it further in this year’s playoffs than ever before. But can they make it further than that? The bracket makers didn’t do the No. 8-seed Thunderbirds any favors on their path through the FCS playoff bracket. SUU might have the toughest path out of any team (seeded or not) to reach the championship game in Frisco, Texas. SUU’s quarterfinal pod includes No. 1-seed James Madison, co-Big Sky champion Weber State ( No.
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".
