The former Mr. Football in Ohio, the former All-SEC freshman, the guy that returned the black and gold to national prominence now has no affiliation to the football team he became so accustomed to leading week-in and week-out.
Take a look a Twitter's reaction to Maty Mauk's removal from the Missouri football program.
The junior quarterback led Mizzou to SEC East titles in 2013 and 2014.
Barry Odom and Mack Rhoades, in a statement: “In the interim, Maty Mauk has been indefinitely suspended from the Mizzou football program.”
Drew Lock: “We hadn’t seen his face in a long time, and it’s just kind of weird. Now, it’s kind of weird again.”
Just five days after being reinstated, quarterback Maty Mauk was suspended for the rest of the season.
He's been gone for four weeks, but fans can pull those No. 7 jerseys back out.
Russell Hansbrough: “(Lock’s) the most relaxed kid I’ve ever seen. He’s just out there having fun with the team, making sure he’s getting the play calls and things like that. He’s a born leader.”
Lock is the first freshman quarterback to start in Pinkel’s 39 years as a football coach.
Lock went 21-28 for 136 yards and a pair of touchdowns in his first career start.
Enough platitudes and cliches; let’s see changes.
After Saturday’s 21-13 loss to Kentucky, the Tigers total offense ranks 119 out of 127 FBS teams in Division I.
With Maty Mauk suspended, Drew Lock will most likely start Saturday.
Terry Beckner Jr.: “It’s part of the game. Us as a team, we’re going to stay behind him, because that’s our main quarterback right now. We believe in him.”
The Tigers have two choices: Play better or take ownership of their shortcomings.
Our student section represents MU just as much as the athletes wearing our colors on the field do.
Tyler Hunt had the highlight of the win with his second catch of the season.
Kentrell Brothers duplicates last week's 16-tackle performance.
Lock racked up 138 passing yards and a touchdown in his first three drives as a Missouri Tiger.
Drew Lock might play. Drew Lock might not play. But there will be hype for the freshman quarterback.
