Some players keep their feelings “in-house” when they are replaced by a coach. In the case of Missouri quarterback Maty Mauk, his feelings are more than known by anyone who follows him on social media.
Mauk has been suspended for the Tigers’ last two games, including Saturday’s blowout loss at home to the Florida Gators. His suspension is indefinite, so who knows when or if he will be back under center. His replacement, freshman Drew Lock, struggled Saturday … throwing two picks and competing just over 40% of his pass attempts.
On social media, fans of the Tigers took to ripping Lock for his showing … and Mauk couldn’t agree with them more, favoriting several tweets:

Whatever the circumstances are surrounding the reason for his suspension, this is a classless move by Mauk. It’s okay to be mad that you were replaced (in fact, that’s the way a player should be), but you can’t do something like this and expect there to be no issues inside the locker room. It’s moments like this why some coaches ban social media during the course of the football season.
