Let's try to generate a quarterback controversy.
Maty Mauk should be the starter! 3 years w/ DGB!
We could generate a post-Franklin QB controversy.
Maty Mauk (whom I love as a player, which I'm sure is not a surprise to anyone here) vs. Trent Hosick: Who fits better.
With Hosick, you could plug him into the exact offense Missouri runs with Franklin (and I've heard some say Hosick is more advanced as a passer now than Franklin was at the same stage). With Mauk, you have a perfect spread QB who can run and scramble a little, too (Like a taller hybrid of Chase Daniel and Todd Reesing).
Which fits Missouri's offense better for the SEC?
Also, some predictions from me (just my opinion) on some of the other big in-state names. Here's a five-pack:
Nick Ramirez - Mizzou (He's a LSW West kid, very close with Evan Boehm, has stated Mizzou is on top even if Arkansas offers)
Trent Hosick - Mizzou (Was dying for an offer as QB. Got it. WIll take some time, but I think the Tigers land him)
Eric Beisel - Alabama (If they offer officially, I think he's going down south)
Zach Hannon - Mizzou (From a Mizzou family)
Ezequiel Elliott - Too soon to call (EE has offers from: Ohio State, Georgia, Arkansas, Nebraska, Notre Dame, Wisconsin, among others. He's probably going to get bumped to five stars. But both his parents were Mizzou athletes, and family atmosphere is the most important thing to him. Hopefully, those factors help Mizzou win out).
