Missouri suspends QB after video
COLUMBIA, Mo. — Missouri suspended junior QB Maty Mauk for the third time in four months late Monday shortly after a video surfaced on social media.
The 9-second video in which a person appears to snort a white powder off a table was posted on Twitter by a user who mentioned Mauk's name. There was no confirmation from Missouri that the video shows Mauk.
Mauk's father, Mike, told the Kansas City Star in a text message it was an "old video." At least two teammates said the same thing on Twitter.
