AMES, Ia. — It would have been easy for Kyle Starcevich to give up. Starcevich was a walk-on holder for the Cyclones when he suffered his third torn ACL just four weeks before the start of the 2016 season. For most players that would have been enough. But Starcevich wasn’t quite ready to call it quits on his football career or his dream of playing at Jack Trice Stadium. “Anyway to get on the field, anyway to help the team that I can — that’s what I was trying to do,” Starcevich said.
AMES, Ia. — Hakeem Butler shakes his head as he starts laughing. He's thinking about his journey to Iowa State. And what a journey it's been. There have been so many twists, turns, tough moments. Where to begin? What to say? The redshirt sophomore, sitting in his Nike red and maroon jacket, leans back in his chair and reflects on it all. “It’s just been incredible. ... If I could go back and do it all again, I wouldn’t change a thing,” Butler said.
The Iowa State football team’s bye week is coming at a good time for two defensive starting stars. Cyclones coach Matt Campbell said safety Kamari Cotton-Moya and cornerback D’Andre Payne didn’t practice Sunday, but he hopes the time off this week will help get them back for Iowa State’s first Big 12 Conference game on Sept. 28 against Texas. Cotton-Moya suffered an elbow injury in Iowa State’s second game of the season and missed the third game at Akron last Saturday.
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".
