It’s one of the great mysteries of our time, ranking right up there with the location of Jimmy Hoffa’s corpse, the success of unwatchable reality shows and a giraffe only needing 30 minutes of sleep per day. Why does Kansas compete way better against TCU than vs. any other Big 12 school? It defies explanation. It’s not as if the Horned Frogs are a lower-division team. They are 28-20 in conference games since joining the Big 12. Kansas is 3-45 over the same period.
The words of his former boss have echoed through the years for Dallas Skyline High basketball coach Paul Graham. “I learned from coach (Eddie) Sutton, ‘Don’t sell your soul for talent. It’s not right for you and it’s not right for the kids,’ ” Graham said of the coach he worked under at Oklahoma State. Translation: Coach a superstar just as hard on the court and in life as any other player.
David Beaty has the second half of his third season to prove he has made progress with the Kansas football program, but D-Day comes earlier for the man making the call on Beaty’s boss, athletic director Sheahon Zenger. A generous estimate for that timetable is two weeks. Here’s why: Kansas needs ample time to search for a new athletic director who then will make the call on Beaty at season’s end.
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".
