Tom Izzo says shooting well is a key to winning in the NCAA tournament. Teams on Thursday who did not shoot well struggled and/or lost. Opening games can be tense and MSU likely will have a close first half with Bucknell before wearing that team down in the second half.
Baseball season has started in the Big Ten and the rival games fill the most seats. "In My View the Big Ten has crazy scheduling in every sport-- little common sense," says News 10's Tim Staudt. MSU is due to open its home baseball schedule on March 15. If you're used to be the Michigan vs. MSU baseball series during the last week of the season, this year it is March 23-24-25 and if it is wiped out by weather, it might not be made up by Big Ten rule. "College baseball is silly," says Staudt.
Oakland University Basketball Coach, Greg Kampe, says Michigan's John Beilein would trade places with MSU's Tom Izzo over the NCAA brackets. He is referring to MSU having to play, likely Duke and Kansas, the week after playing in Detroit. Michigan is not playing in Detroit, and will make the Final Four through Wichita and Los Angeles if the Wolverines can win four games.
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".
