Mizzou Football has seen it’s fair share of good quarterbacks through the years, especially lately. Who were the best five?
The Tigers are currently set to have a quarterback battle by two players who could very well replace someone on this list someday.
Drew Lock, who stepped in for Maty Mauk when Mauk was released from the team, had a rough go in 2015 with four touchdowns compared to eight interceptions. He is a true freshman and was a four-star recruit coming into college so he should rebound with a little more seasoning.
It didn’t help that Mizzou football was the center of some very unsavory national headlines in the middle of his season, or that fan favorite Gary Pinkel announced his departure. He has a long road to get there, but could someday land on this list.
Maty Mauk, on the other hand, could easily replace someone on this list, if he’s willing to get his head together. Mauk was dismissed not once, but twice from the team during the 2015 season. He’s already thrown for 42 touchdowns in his short career which includes only one full season as the starter.
Mauk’s got one more year of eligibility to try and knock someone from the list, but more importantly make his case at being drafted.
The future for these two might be bright, but they’ve both got a lot to prove, either mentally or in terms of talent. But enough about the future, let’s shift gears to the past and look at the top five signal callers in Mizzou football history.
