The University of Missouri football team has suspended quarterback Maty Mauk after a video emerged on social media of Mauk snorting a powdery white substance.
Mediaite cannot confirm that the video actually depicts Mauk snorting cocaine. It may be another white powdery substance cut into a line that makes you scream the F-word after you snort it.

“This is an issue we take very seriously and one that will not be tolerated within our program,” Missouri’s coaches said in a statement. “We will take the appropriate actions once we have all the facts. In the interim, Maty Mauk has been indefinitely suspended for the Mizzou football program.”
This is Mauk’s third suspension in four months. The program never gave an explanation for the first two suspensions, the second of which came only four days after he was reinstated.
Despite entering the season ranked, the Tigers ended their 2015 season with a dismal 5-7 record, going 1-7 in SEC play. The football team did make national headlines however, when they threatened to refuse to play in protest of the university administration’s handling of racial issues.
