Drew Lock has at least one big-time defender.
As shared by The Kansas City Star’s Alec Lewis, Missouri linebacker Michael Scherer came to the defense of the Tigers’ quarterback Monday, two days after Lock went 4-of-18 passing for 39 yards and 2 interceptions in a blowout loss to Florida. Lewis asked Scherer if he had spoken to Lock about the loss.
It’s safe to say Scherer wasn’t happy about that.

Scherer has a point. Lock had at least 376 yards passing in each game during a stretch from Sept. 10-24 against Eastern Michigan, Georgia and Delaware State in which Missouri went 2-1.
Missouri coach Barry Odom didn’t have Lock or backup quarterback Marvin Zanders address reporters Monday, so it’s uncertain what Lock’s frame of mind looks like after the Tigers dropped to 2-4. Earlier Monday, Missouri released a depth chart that showed Lock as the No. 1 quarterback.
It will be fascinating to see if Lock can rebound Saturday, when Missouri hosts Middle Tennessee.
