Piggybacking off last season’s wildly successful no-hair, no-shave movement among Missouri’s offensive line, junior center Evan Boehm and redshirt sophomore quarterback Maty Mauk are spearheading the “Beards and Mullets” movement for 2014.
The starting offensive line and Mauk are committed to growing bushy beards with shaggy mullets — the business-in-the-front, party-in-the-back coiffure — during the season.
“We opened it up to the whole offensive line room too,” Boehm said. “… The starters are definitely doing it, but if anybody else in the offensive line wants to do it, they’re more than welcome to.”
Boehm and Mauk decided to look as presentable as possible for SEC Media Days, but that doesn’t mean the movement has stalled.

“It’s going,” Boehm said. “If you look at Maty’s hair right, it’s phenomenal.”
Boehm also is looking for help from the public — and the media — to take Beards and Mullets worldwide.
“The beards and mullets, hashtag that on Twitter, for sure,” Boehm said. “Hashtag that in your articles, because we’ve got to get that trending. We’re going to make it happen.”
