5 for Inside for Mississippi State-Ole Miss
STARKVILLE -- Kayla Nevitt realizes there is no place on the Mississippi State women's basketball team for timid players. The 5-foot-10 freshman guard from Houston, Texas, has watched sophomore forward Ketara Chapel overcome complacency and timidness and attack the beginning of the 2014-15 season. Nevitt admits she had her share of questions and nerves as she approached her first season with the Bulldogs. Those butterflies carried over into MSU's initial games and caused Nevitt to doubt herself and to think too much.
AUBURN, Ala. -- Alabama quarterback Blake Sims is a passer who can run. Auburn quarterback Nick Marshall is a runner who can pass.

How they go about doing that is quite different.
