I feel bad for fellow University of Arizona alum Jeff Goodman.The man is one of ESPN’s top college basketball reporters and he had to fly all the way to Lithuania just to hear LaVar Ball carnival bark about Los Angeles Lakers head coach Luke Walton and to hear the youngest of the three Ball sons call being taken out of high school before his senior year a “dream come true.”If that wasn’t enough, he asked LaVar Ball what advice he gave his sons before their first game as professionals and he...
The University of Central Florida finished the 2017 season as the only undefeated team in the FBS after defeating the Auburn Tigers — the only team to have beaten both Alabama and Georgia — in the Peach Bowl. However, when it came to the College Football Playoff, the Knights were completely left out.The Knights had the highest scoring offense in the FBS and defeated more bowl eligible teams (8) than Alabama (5) prior to the playoff but weren’t even ranked in the top 10.
There is a debate that has raged recently with members of the sports media showing off their fandom of certain teams and whether or not that was ethical.Which is funny considering ESPN personality Bomani Jones famously said “I’m off that narcotic” when talking about his former fandom towards Atlanta sports teams.It is an interesting discussion, not of whether or not media members should be fans too — that horse left the barn a long time ago, people just now noticed — but when or at...
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".
