With one game remaining, the Syracuse Orange (4-7, 2-5 ACC) have struggled down the stretch of the season, losing their last four since upsetting then No. 2 Clemson. With no chance to make a bowl game, there is no pressure left upon the shoulders of Dino Babers and the Orange. But that doesn’t mean questions are going unaddressed. Since the end of the first half against Wake Forest, the Orange have allowed 96 points in only three halves of football.
While you and I were most likely slouching around in sweat pants, waiting for the turkey to come out of the oven, or already gobbling down our traditional favorites, the Syracuse Oramge women’s basketball team fought with the Wisconsin Badgers (2-2) and earned their fourth win of the season by a slim margin. The Orange 77-74 win is the team’s slimmest margin of victory through their first four games. Prior to Thursday’s game, Syracuse was winning games by an averaged 20.7-point margin.
The Syracuse Orange play their final football game of the season this Saturday. But with Thanksgiving on Thursday, you might get a little distracted by that before facing SU’s ultimate fate. Oh, and basketball’s in full swing. It’s nice to have nice things. In this installment, John Cassillo and Dan Lyons preview the Boston College game, chat hoops and of course, some beer too.
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".
