http://www.cbssports.com/collegefoo...ntinue-to-fall-sec-title-hopes-remain-strong- The Tigers were ranked #25 in the AP poll going into Athens Saturday, after the writers largely ignored Mizzou's 5-0 start, supposedly against weaker opponents. But then, when you've got the #8 ranked offense and the # 5 ranked defense in the country, your opponents are all "weaker." They leaped to #14 in the AP, and their #8 rank in the Power Poll (based on strength of schedule, offensive and defensive performances, etc.) is up from #23 going into the Georgia game. With Franklin injured, the question is, can freshman Maty Mauk keep the Tigers rolling? There are a few things we do know for sure. Mauk is a tough kid at 6-1, 200 pounds and has tremendous arm strength. He was a highly recruited player for a reason, and he has the look of a respectable quarterback. While he has more of a stocky build, he's also quite athletic for his frame and can make plays rolling out of the pocket. With so many freshman quarterbacks taking over the college game lately, there's no doubt he's capable of making enough plays to help the Tigers remain unbeaten.
