We need to stop talking about how the Washington Redskins have their backs against the wall after every loss.You want “backs against the wall?”In 2012, the Redskins fell to 3-6. Head coach Mike Shanahan declared the season over except for players competing for roster spots for the 2013 season.Then, two rookie quarterbacks, Robert Griffin III and Kirk Cousins, a rookie running back, Alfred Morris, and a defense that kept improving, engineered an improbable seven-game winning streak.
When it was over, and it was over long before the game actually ended, Richmond had defeated Howard 68-21.That leads to the question, just how bad is – wait for it – not Howard, but the University of Nevada Las Vegas, the Football Bowl Subdivision team Howard, a level below in the Football Championship Subdivision, defeated 43-40 in Las Vegas two weeks ago.Perhaps this is an existential question for which there is no definitive answer.
One young student-athlete who keeps her wits about her, even through the pain of a loss, and knows opponents deserve to be congratulated, can make the difference between good behavior and bad for an entire team.One young student-athlete can staunch ill-advised remarks from teammates and even fans.One student can set an example many will appreciate, maybe not in the moment, but an hour, a day, a week, a lifetime later.In the girls’ state soccer championship game in 2016, Mills Godwin’s Paige...
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".
