After reading last week that the Buffaloes had offered a football scholarship to troubled four-star recruit Yuri Wright, and he had chosen to attend Colorado, I shook my head in antipathy. On national signing day today, coach Jon Embree officially will announce that 28 players, including Wright (rated among the school’s three best recruits), have signed letters of intent. The contentious rite of passage for Wright — a shy, stuttering, solid student — has been documented nationally and rampantly.
“Follow my lead, oh, how I need someone to watch over me.”Mom always has watched over me. She wasn’t feeling so good again a couple of weeks ago. So we went to the hospital for the 17th time in the past three years. (She kept count in her journal.) Billie Paige has been battling cancer like Troy Tulowitzki battling Clayton Kershaw’s curveball, and she had fouled off 16 nasty pitches. I use the comparison only because she loved baseball, especially Tulo and the Rockies.
SAN DIEGO — Don’t ever take a knife to Mona Lisa’s face, a hammer to David’s chest or a helmet to Peyton’s legs. Don’t take a cheap shot at a work of art. The only strategy apparently left to the Broncos’ opponents is to try to take Peyton Manning out. He’s obviously too good for defenses to beat legitimately. But Manning and the Broncos won again, anyway, Sunday. With time and hope running out on the Chargers, right defensive end Corey Liuget went after Manning’s legs. Late.
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".
