Most of the 10,481 fans were still in their seats at the Prudential Center as the final seconds ticked off the clock, but an afternoon that began with frenzied anticipation was about to end in disappointment, and with a familiar question:Just how good is this Seton Hall team anyway? This was an opportunity to answer that in a resounding way, a chance for the Pirates to prove that a pair of unsightly road losses were just part of life in the Big East.
PHILADELPHIA -- This has to be a loathsome idea. One of the long-accepted joys of being the Giants is looking down at the Philadelphia Eagles -- down on the road map, down in the NFC East standings, and most of all, down in the Lombardi Trophy count. The latter isn't going to change no matter what happens in the NFC Championship Game on Sunday. The Giants have four. The Eagles have none. The team from the Meadowlands has been showered with praise over the years as a model NFL franchise.
PHILADELPHIA -- The soul searching took place during the longest offseason of his football life, an eight-month stretch when the thought of even picking up a football was unthinkable. Nick Foles was done. He had "no love for the game" that had occupied most of his 26 years on the planet. This was 2016, in the immediate aftermath of an awful season in St. Louis that had crushed his spirit, and he wondered if the best option was just to hang it up entirely.
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".
