COLLEGE PARK, Md. — Looking down the barrel of its first 0-3 start to Big Ten play since 2013, Northwestern responded against Maryland on Saturday and put a dent in the win column amid a brutal stretch of October contests. The Wildcats (3-3, 1-2 Big Ten) shook off a slow start and overcame a pair of turnovers in a 37-21 victory over the Terrapins (3-3, 1-2). NU’s offense stole the show, recovering from a dispiriting homecoming effort against Penn State and rolling up more than 500 yards.
Northwestern’s offense has been here before. In an echo of the September struggles of 2016, when the unit hit its nadir in a 9-7 loss to FCS program Illinois State, the Wildcats’ scoring attack floundered in a 31-7 homecoming loss to No. 4 Penn State (6-0, 3-0 Big Ten) on Saturday. Only a garbage-time touchdown spared NU (2-3, 0-2) its first home shutout since 1999. The loss leaves the Cats seeking an offensive turnaround like last year’s.
Justin Jackson has heard enough about it by now. He said he’s been hearing about it since last December, when he tore up 224 yards of Yankee Stadium turf in the Wildcats’ upset of Pittsburgh. The chatter continued through the offseason and September. The good news for Jackson: He shouldn’t hear about it much longer.
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".
