Tuesday marked the first big night of the college basketball season, as four of the teams you’ll consider picking to go all the way in March—Duke, Michigan State, Kansas, and Kentucky— tipped off in Chicago. The Champions Classic often serves as the first chance most people have to see the highly touted freshmen that anchor each team. But thanks to the enormity of the stage and the timing of the games (November basketball! Woohoo!
For the second straight week, college football was dominated by chaos. If Week 10 was the appetizer, Week 11 was the main course. Over the weekend, no. 1 Georgia, no. 3 Notre Dame, no. 6 TCU, no. 9 Washington, and no. 12 Michigan State all fell, while no. 2 Alabama came back from a fourth-quarter deficit to beat no. 16 Mississippi State. Had the Crimson Tide lost, it would have been the first time since January 1, 1966, that the top three teams in the nation all lost on the same day.
If it’s OK with everybody, I’d like to speak directly to the 929 people who determine the winner of the Heisman Trophy: Give it to Baker Mayfield. On Saturday, Mayfield led the Sooners to a 38-20 win over no. 6 TCU and finished with 333 yards and three touchdowns on 18-for-27 passing. If that wasn’t enough, he added 50 yards on the ground, including a 27-yard jaunt on third and long. Every time TCU failed to capitalize on an opportunity, Mayfield made them pay.
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".
