STARKVILLE - Jay Logan has had two revelations about his career.
STARKVILLE - When former Mississippi State second baseman Brooke O'Hair looks at her husband Tony, she thinks of the MSU softball stadium and field.
STARKVILLE -- In the past three seasons, the Mississippi State men's basketball team found competing in the Southeastern Conference to be an uphill battle. In three seasons at MSU, former coach Rick Ray didn't post a winning record in the SEC. His highest win total (six) came last season. As a result, Ray was fired a week and a half after a season-ending loss to Auburn in the SEC tournament. He has since been hired to lead the Southeast Missouri State men's basketball program.
STARKVILLE -- Don't mess with Shelby Jordan. Despite the drops of water falling from her face, the intensity in Jordan's eyes speaks to the camera and keeps you glued to the screen for nine seconds. No, she isn't auditioning for the next big horror movie. Instead, Jordan's acting debut in the HailState Productions video is meant to convey a message that a storm -- the Mississippi State women's soccer team -- is coming in August 2015.
STARKVILLE -- David McFatrich knew what he was getting into when he became Mississippi State's new volleyball coach. McFatrich realized MSU never has qualified for the NCAA tournament and has won only 86 Southeastern Conference matches in its 40-year history.
STARKVILLE -- Scoring never has been an issue for Craig Sword. Sword has scored in double figures in each of the past three seasons to lead the Mississippi State men's basketball team. Last season, Sword was bothered by a back injury that required surgery weeks before the 2014-15 opener. After missing the first four games of the season, Sword needed additional time to find his rhythm, but the Montgomery, Alabama, native still averaged 11.3 points per game. As a sophomore and freshman he averaged 13.7 and 10.5 ppg., respectively.
STARKVILLE -- Ben Wood was in the midst of his best season at Mississippi State in 2014-15. He won two tournaments in the fall and was preparing to carry that momentum to the spring and help the Bulldogs reach the postseason. Then his mother, Robin, lost her battle to bile duct cancer, which attacks the liver, in January.
STARKVILLE -- Mississippi State enjoyed a record day last year when eight players committed during the annual Big Dawg Camp at Davis Wade Stadium.
STARKVILLE - Southeastern Conference Media Days officially marks the beginning of football season.

STARKVILLE -- Seven months ago, Teaira McCowan knew she was going to play basketball in college.

HOOVER, Ala. - South Carolina head coach Steve Spurrier loves golf.
HOOVER, Ala. - There is no doubt in Ryan Brown's mind who the most competitive player on the current Mississippi State roster is.
STARKVILLE -- For Rica Tse, this summer has been anything but dull.
STARKVILLE -- Mississippi State golf coaches will have a hard time finding a better college facility than the one the Bulldogs will be using come August.
