At the end of the 59-7 Bears win, Cal head coach Jeff Tedford jogs out to the middle of the field. His movement is filled with a slight swagger, his legs carried by the type of self-assurance that only comes after one’s team has truly routed their opponent. He shakes the hand of the opposing team’s head coach, an unassuming brown-haired man with a red visor on. The camera cuts away from them and to the players, who are performing the requisite post-game ritual of hugs and back pats.
In soccer, the mark of a good defensive team is a bored goalie, and it’s a testament to Cal’s fastidious fortification this weekend that senior goalkeeper Emily Boyd was practically twiddling her thumbs in her box. In Boyd’s 180 total minutes of play, she had to make zero saves, and her lack of action was welcome news to the No. 17 Bears, who racked up two wins against Oklahoma and higher-ranked No. 14 Oklahoma State.
The University of Oklahoma and Oklahoma State University are a mere 86 miles from one another, a drive that (if you’re doing it right) takes a maximum of an hour and a half. But despite this geographic proximity, they are leaps and bounds away from one another when it comes to the talent of their women’s soccer teams. This disparity in dexterity will pose an interesting test for the 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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
