In what may be one of the best college football championship games in history, the Georgia Bulldogs allowed the Alabama Crimson Tide to do the exact thing they did to the Oklahoma Sooners just a week ago. The Bulldogs were up by 13 points at halftime against the Crimson Tide. A week ago in the Rose Bowl, Oklahoma was up by 14 points at halftime against the Georgia. Both teams losing at half-time came back to win the game in overtime.
The anticipation was plenty during the college football playoffs, starting in Pasadena, with the Rose Bowl. The Georgia Bulldogs and the Oklahoma Sooners gave us every piece of awesomeness we could ask for in a college football game. The game came down to the wire, raising the blood pressure of many in the process. It was a tale of two halves, the first half was all about the Sooners and the second half is when the Bulldogs defense decided to show up.
Christmas Day was an awesome day for sports fans. It gave us five basketball games on television and two football games. The defending NBA champion Golden State Warriors took on the LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers in the finals rematch and what has become a Christmas Day game that we all have looked forward to for quite some time now. This game, like we would expect, was a controversial one and came down to the last minute.
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".
