Back when Doug Marrone was courting Helen Donnelly more than two decades ago, he pulled aside her father to ask for her hand. Helen Donnelly’s dad is known as “Boots,” and he won 140 games over two decades as a Hall of Fame coach at Middle Tennessee State. He answered Marrone like any clear-thinking football coach. “We spent a lot of money sending Helen to Boston College and then law school,” Boots recalls with a chuckle in his slow-cooked drawl.
FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – Tom Brady wore red gloves to practice Thursday. Technically, he didn’t actually practice. He was on hand, but not hands on, which will lead to inevitable accusations of the Pats using a sleight of hand. Hands down, the health of Brady’s right hand is the biggest story in all of New England and the NFL. The right glove is the most important garment in these parts since Curt Schilling’s bloody sock. How a glove looked on a famous athlete hasn’t been more scrutinized since the O.J.
As a high school senior in New Jersey, Alex Thomson was such a lightly regarded quarterback prospect that his only local recognition came as third-team All-Shore punter by his local newspaper, the Asbury Park Press. He took two college visits, as the market for a Wing T quarterback isn’t vast, and ultimately walked on at Wagner after receiving an academic scholarship. Four years later, Thomson has emerged as the most intriguing graduate transfer quarterback in college football.
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".
