The first points scored in the University of San Diego basketball team’s 2017-18 season came off a steal and a breakaway and an alley-oop and a slam dunk. So the Toreros (finally) have that going for them. Anyone who has been watching one of Division I men’s basketball’s most below-the-rim teams for any length of time saw the sequence involving Isaiah Wright’s steal and pass and Isaiah Pineiro’s dunk as more than a basket. It was a sign that USD is becoming who it has believed it can become.
The public address announcer’s voice, in full pro wrestling rumble, echoed around the old stadium. “I can feel the energy, Los Angeles,“ he roared. “You’re ready for a big day with your L.A. Rams.”The Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, which can hold 93,000 souls, was at that point occupied by about 5,000 people spread around its orange and yellow and peach and sort-of-pink sun-bleached seats. It was an hour before kickoff. There was no energy palpable inside the 94-year-old building.
I don’t know how long this affair will last, how much I can put up with between the lawsuits and the bickering and the narcissism and the possibility the game is killing men hit by hit. And oh, I am aware the owners are arrogant and in some cases out of touch and the star players are getting hurt and Roger Goodell sometimes seems to confuse a hole in the ground with his rear end. But that’s pretty much why I’m loving this season. In many ways, it is my first NFL season.
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".
