This is the third in a series evaluating how Tennessee stands at each position for the 2017 football season. Go to govolsxtra.com for previous installments. If you want to inject some excitement into a conversation about Tennessee’s defense, drop Nigel Warrior’s name. The sophomore safety played just enough last season to get fans revved up about having a prominent role in UT’s secondary.
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Tennessee athletic director John Currie understands the challenge facing him as he enters the first full school year in his new job. The Volunteers were 46th in the most recent Directors' Cup all-sports standings, their lowest finish since the award originated in 1993-94. Tennessee has ranked no better than 33rd each of the last six years. That's quite a fall for a school that never finished below 27th from 1994-2011.
Larry Scott, Tennessee’s new offensive coordinator, has a tough act to follow. Go ahead, say it: “Huh?”Mike DeBord might be the least appreciated coordinator in Tennessee history. For proof, you only had to tune in to any postgame talk show last year when callers, in various stages of alcohol-enhanced insight, would detail UT’s offensive ineptitude.
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".
