Odds are that if Ashton Glaser took a snap under center at quarterback for Missouri this season than things had gone very wrong in Columbia. Which likely had a lot to do with the news that Glaser is transferring to
Glaser only played in one game during his two seasons with Missouri, but never threw a pass. Instead he had 2 carries for 3 yards during the fourth quarter of a 69-0 blowout victory against Western Illinois.
Since Missouri State is an FCS school Glaser will not have to sit out a season following his transfer.
As for Missouri, while Glaser wasn't likely to play this season, this move does leave the Tigers with only three scholarship quarterbacks. James Franklin is obviously still on top of the depth chart, but he is recovering from shoulder surgery. While Franklin is expected to be back in time to start the season and plans on throwing again this month, there's always a risk when it comes to shoulder surgery, particularly with a quarterback.
Then there's backup quarterback Corbin Berkstresser who was arrested for a hit-and-run in May after leaving the scene of an accident. He was reinstated to the team in June.
True freshman Maty Mauk will take Glaser's place as Mizzou's third-string quarterback.
