On Nov. 28, 2015, in the moments after Ole Miss' 38-27 win at Mississippi State in the Egg Bowl, this is what I wrote: "So is this Ole Miss' state now?" Because while the logic at the time made sense â€” Ole Miss had won two Egg Bowls in a row, broke the long losing streak for the road team and was a month away from playing in a Sugar Bowl â€” very little, if anything, has gone right for the Rebels since the moment it celebrated that Sugar Bowl in the Superdome.
STARKVILLE — Donald Gray has played his last game as a Mississippi State wide receiver. Dan Mullen announced Monday that Gray, a senior, recently had surgery for a sports hernia and will miss the Egg Bowl on Thursday along with whatever bowl game Mississippi State plays in. Gray injured his groin against Texas A&M four weeks ago and hasn’t played since, missing the last three games. Gray finished with 24 catches for 214 receiving yards and three touchdowns.
STARKVILLE — When Jeffery Simmons saw a tweet during the during that some Las Vegas oddsmakers predicted Mississippi State would finish 2-10 this season, he texted strength coach Nick Savage with a request. “I think you need to print this out and put it in everyone’s locker,” Simmons’ message said. Those sheets of paper were in lockers the next day. “We took that and used it as motivation,” Simmons said. “We knew we were going to have a great 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".
