If the first half of Oregon's opening game in the National Invitational Tournament resembled the football team's start in the Las Vegas Bowl, that didn't surprise Dana Altman. "It's not the same," Altman acknowledged of playing in the NIT. "You talk all year long about making the NCAA Tournament and when you don't it is like a football team that wants to be in a major bowl and you go to the Las Vegas Bowl. As much as you try, it is not the same thing."
When the stopwatches turned on, Arrion Springs went into character. “I like to put on a show, of course,” said the cornerback who was Oregon’s biggest personality in recent seasons. Springs was the fastest of 10 ex-Ducks in the 40-yard dash at 4.47 seconds during pro day on Thursday, according one scout who provided his results to the school. There was talk in the Moshofsky Center that another scout had him at 4.38. “I got a little bit of a boost with everybody watching,” he said.
George Horton usually feels good about his pitching heading into Pac-12 play and hopes for enough hitting, but this season has started out different. Oregon ranks fourth in the Pac-12 with a .268 batting average, including four starters at .300 or better, as they open the conference schedule with a three-game series at Arizona State beginning on Friday.
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".
