College Football 24/7 writer Chase Goodbread noted that Eastern Kentucky graduate QB Maty Mauk will "have a better chance to flourish [in the FCS]."
"Even in his only full season as a Missouri starter, in 2014, Mauk's passing was erratic at best," Goodbread wrote. In that 2014 season in question, the 6-foot-1, 200-pounder threw for 2,648 yards with a 25/13 TD/INT ratio. He had received intermittent low-level draft talk before being dismissed from Missouri in January after a video surfaced that appeared to show him snorting a line of powder. Mauk was suspended three times during his stint with the Tigers. Even before the 2015 season collapsed like a dying star, he was doing little to move the Missouri offensive needle. May 21 - 2:34 PM

Missouri graduate QB Maty Mauk transferred to Eastern Kentucky.

Mauk officially graduated from Mizzou last week. He remained enrolled at the university after he was dismissed from the football team in January following the release of a video purporting to show him snorting a white line of powder. The 6-foot-1, 200-pound graduate gunslinger played in just four games last year. During a full 2014 season, he threw for 2,648 yards with a 25/13 TD/INT ratio. With the Colonels, he will be able to play immediately. If he is going to rebuild any hopes of a future in professional football, a strong (clean) 2016 campaign with Eastern Kentucky is imperative.

Former Missouri redshirt junior QB Maty Mauk's Twitter bio suggests an Eastern Kentucky transfer.

Neither Eastern Kentucky nor Mauk and his family have confirmed Mauk's transfer. News in the age of social media for you. Mauk was dismissed from the Tigers in January after a video surfaced which appeared to show him snorting a line of powder. Eastern Kentucky took a notable chance on former Ohio State edge rusher Noah Spence after his own drug issues landed him in hot water. Mauk would fit that (hopeful) rehabilitative mold, too.

Missouri dismissed redshirt junior QB Maty Mauk.

Mauk's eventual downfall with the Tigers came via a video that broke on Twitter on Monday night which appeared to show the quarterback snorting a line of white powder. The school immediately moved to slap an indefinite suspension on the 6-foot-1, 200-pound gunslinger. In a statement, HC Barry Odom said, "After gathering information and speaking with a number of individuals this week, it is clear Maty has failed to live up to those expectations by violating team rules in recent weeks." Odom indicated that they believe the video to be of the old variety--which backs up what an anonymous teammate said on Tuesday--but that alone was not enough to save Mauk from the axe and he's now been officially dismissed.

A Missouri teammate of suspended redshirt junior QB Maty Mauk said the video of the quarterback appearing to snort a white line of powder was taken two years ago and Mauk has since cleaned up.

To give some credence to the quote, Mauk’s hair in the video was much longer than it is now. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported that Mauk’s initial suspension (of three) last September was related to a failed drug test. His teammate, who asked for anonymity, said Mauk has "been really turning things around" since the end of this past season and "has been clean for a while." After the video was released on Twitter on Monday, Mizzou AD Mack Rhoades and HC Barry Odom announced that Mauk was suspended indefinitely.

Missouri suspended redshirt junior QB Maty Mauk indefinitely after the school became aware of an alleged video purporting to show him snorting a substance.

In a joint statement, AD Mack Rhoades and HC Barry Odom said, "We are currently gathering information about the video in question," adding that they take the issue "very seriously" and that until the university's gathered all the facts, Mauk's been suspended indefinitely. This is the third time the 6-foot-1, 200-pound redshirt junior's been suspended in the last five months. This is a developing story and more information should come to light in the coming days.

Missouri reinstated redshirt junior QB Maty Mauk.

Missouri coach Barry Odom, who just took over for Gary Pinkel, ended Mauk's exile at what amounted to an eight-game suspension. Mauk was suspended twice this year, the first time for a violation of team policy and the second time for an incident at a local bar. Odom says Mauk will compete with Drew Lock for the starting job next summer under new offensive coordinator and position coach Josh Heupel. "He’s on our team now, and just like every other player he’s going to have very strict guidelines on what they can and can’t do," Odom said. "The quarterback position is different than any position on the team and different than any position in sports. Those guys are going to be held very, very accountable for everything they do. They’re a representative of me and our football program and university."

Missouri redshirt junior QB Maty Mauk has been suspended for the remainder of the 2015 season.

Mauk was reinstated from a prior suspension just six days ago. That suspension was due to a violation of team policy. Missouri has declined to offer a specific reason for this most recent suspension, except to say that is for disciplinary reasons. Freshman Drew Lock should finish out the 2015 campaign as Missouri's starting quarterback. The Tigers have scored just 12 points in their last three games.

Missouri redshirt junior QB Maty Mauk was reinstated to the football team on Sunday, according to beat writer Dave Matter.

This includes all team activities, however, it is unclear if Mauk will play in the school's upcoming game against Mississippi State. Mauk has been suspended since September 29 for unspecified reasons. Freshman Drew Lock started the last four contests with average to bad results, scoring just 12 points in three consecutive losses.

Missouri redshirt junior QB Maty Mauk was not listed on the team's Monday depth chart.

Previously, HC Gary Pinkel said that Mauk "will be on the depth chart" when his indefinite suspension is lifted. He's still not on there as of Monday's released chart. The 6-foot-1, 200-pound redshirt junior is serving a suspension for an unspecified violation of team rules. The Tigers play Vanderbilt on Saturday.

Missouri head coach Gary Pinkel clarified redshirt junior Maty Mauk's status, saying the QB is indefinitely suspended.

When Mauk returns "he'll be on the depth chart," Pinkel told reporters. This means Drew Lock will be the starter moving forward, and his play against South Carolina. Barring injury, Mauk might have started his last game for the Tigers.

Missouri has suspended redshirt junior QB Maty Mauk for Saturday's game against South Carolina for disciplinary reasons.

Offensive lineman Malik Cuellar has also been suspended. The length of the duo's suspension will be re-evaluated after this week's game. Freshman Drew Lock is expected to start in Mauk's place. Missouri barely beat Arkansas State and UConn this season and lost to Kentucky last week.

Missouri redshirt junior QB Maty Mauk completed 14-of-22 passes for 145 yards and an interception in Saturday's 9-6 win over Connecticut.

This was the type of affair that neither outfit deserved to win. The Tigers, in the end, held off the Huskies thanks to a bizarre fake field goal call near the end that would have knotted the score had it converted. Mauk was utterly ineffective, following suit with his play earlier this season. He already has four interceptions and hasn't cracked 200 yards passing despite playing three mediocre opponents.

Missouri redshirt junior QB Maty Mauk completed 12-of-23 passes for 181 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in Saturday's win over Southeast Missouri State.

Mauk threw both of his touchdowns in the first quarter, hooking up with J'Mon Moore for a 27-yard score and Nate Brown for a 23-yarder. He quieted down after the fast start, but the game was never in jeopardy as Mizzou rolled to a 34-3 win to open their season. Last season, the 6-foot-1, 200-pound redshirt junior threw for 2,648 yards and a 25/13 TD/INT ratio while completing 53.4% of his passes.

Missouri redshirt junior QB Maty Mauk was named to the All-SEC Coaches Second Team.

The SEC is rife with quarterback turnover this season, but Mizzou does not have that problem as they look to finally--finally--try to vanquish past demons and win an SEC title. Mauk completed 53.4% of his passes last season, good for 2,648 yards and a 25/13 TD/INT ratio. Much of that production came in the first half of the season. The 6-foot-1, 200-pound redshirt junior offers them a level of stability, if nothing else, but it's difficult to see Missouri making a legitimate playoff run given Mauk's inconsistency and the tremendous turnover on defense.
