Monday came and went but not without a touch of controversy surrounding the Tigers. Coach Gary Pinkel’s media availability offered extensive comments on a variety of issues, including Mizzou’s quarterback situation, and missed calls from last Saturday’s 9-6 loss to UGA.
Here are two things to know:
- Another week, another start for Drew Lock. The freshman continues #Locktober with his fourth consecutive start after junior quarterback Maty Mauk again was not listed on the depth chart following his suspension for a violation of team policies. The Tigers are 1-2 with Lock under center and have scored a total of 33 points.
- It does little to heal the wound of losing a close conference game, but on Monday the SEC told Pinkel that two plays he appealed were both ruled incorrectly on Saturday. Both plays ended up being pivotal. The first, a muffed punt that should have been ruled interference resulted in a turnover, while the second, an incorrect pass interference penalty against Aarion Penton, resulted in UGA’s game-winning field goal.
