Alex Poythress Has Some Explaining to Do


Alex Poythress was caught wearing a Tennessee shirt during Thursday night’s Tennessee/Appalachian State game. After some investigating, I figured out why.

Alex’s sister, Alexis Poythress, is in a relationship with Tennessee player Jalen Reeves-Maybin. Reeves-Maybin was ejected from Tennesee’s season opener in the first quarter for targeting during a punt.

Since it’s family, I guess you are forgiven Alex.

    And it appears that Jalen Reeves Maybin is the son of Marques Maybin who played basketball at the University of Louisville…..

    After 5 years at UK, the man can wear whatever shirt he wants to. He bleeds blue. That said, orange isn’t a good look on him

    BS there is never a reason to wear a UT shirt.
