Local Volunteer fan Trish Nabers decided she was tired of "all the negativity" around the Tennessee football team.

Determined to help shed the negative comments, Nabers invited several friends and one of her daughters to help repaint the rock on the University of Tennessee campus. Armed with boxes of white, black, and orange spray-paint cans the group gathered on Wednesday afternoon to share a positive message for the players and coaches.

In a little over one and one-half hours the group had covered the negative comments and replaced it with, "We believe in our players and coaches, Vol for Life."

Patti Smith, who earned both of her degrees from UT said she just wanted to help the effort. Lindsay Serfass, who was a UT cheerleader from 2001-2005, joined the group along with Nabers and her daughter Jerrin Nabers. Neither Nabers nor her daughter attended UT noting they were just big fans and supporters.

"I'm tired of all the negativity, we love and support our players and coaches," Nabers said.

Several players including Zach Fulton, Dontavis Sapp and Justin Hunter happened by while the painting was happening and seemed pleased, giving Nabers a hug before moving along. Nabers said, "I hope they will leave the positive message til Saturday."

OOPS. Didn't mean to leave Trish, Lindsey and Jerrin out of the group.

So do you support them enough to donate thousands of dollars a year for the privilege it buy tickets? If your support is limited to painting a rock you are just blowing air. The decision will be based upon how satisfied the people who pay THOUSANDS of dollars a year to see team worthy I of wearing the orange jersey play.

I am one of those fans...a paying donor fan...and I assure you I am sick and tired of sending THoUSANDS of dollars a year, then thousands more for the tickets and parking passes just to watch players so unprepared they don't know the rules (you have to catch ja kickoff or it is a live ball) where to line up for punt formation or defense etc etc. no more dollars from me...I'm done!

I get on here and gripe because I love my Vols. You paint a rock. To each his own.....Tho, if someone told me in order to beat Bama I had to fly up to NYC, drop my pants in the middle of Times Square and pee on the street at High Noon....I'd do it. How's THAT for support?!

Great, I know some coaches up the road in Nashville that would love to have your "thousands"..

I support the players and coaches but won't be opposed to a change. With that being said, the fact that you came to a message board to promote the fact that you pay money to the organization makes you a huge turd.

So I guess you pretty much own the team huh. Us regular VFL's got nothin' ta say? Maybe you do what you say and maybe you don't. I don't care. I for one wouldn't care if you took your "money" elsewhere.

Glad to see you go, would rather you jump on the bandwagon for another team and free up your seats for someone who will support the Orange no matter what. Open your eyes and realize that we have made huge strides from where the program was at the end of 09. I would rather see a team who is a mistake away from beating every team they play than getting blown out of the stadium before the game even starts. And this is from someone who is a proud donor of thousands to the university and travels annually to support the team away as well as home.

Sweet! Assuming your seats are better than mine, I might get to move up next year.

Here's some perspective, not that you asked for it...

...Penn State arguably has as good, if not better, of a football tradition than UT. Their recent history on the field, let's say the last 15 years, has left much to be desired (somewhat like UT's most recent decade) yet they still fill their stadium and support their team. So now let's just consider the last year. There is no fan base that has a bigger excuse to stay home than Penn State, yet through unspeakable adversity and embarassment, they still go and support their team. But you're staying home because you don't like our coaches?

That's cool! Just making sure I understand.

I heard somewhere that in order to beat Bama this weekend you'd have to fly up to NYC, drop your pants in Times Square and pee on the street at High Noon. Without that we won't stand a chance. I know you can't believe everything you here so I wouldn't worry if I was you. But just in case???

It's those supporters with the money that actually make the decisions, or at least make them easier for someone. Kinda makes me wonder if you added up all the current donations from the Dooley supporters and the I've-had-enough folks, who would have more. I stopped donating because of the lack of return on my investment.

It's easy to say give Dooley more time if you don't have any money invested. Same goes for predictions. If everyone had to bet $5,000 on the game this weekend, I doubt any posters on here would put their own hard-earned money on the Vols. But it sure is easy to write Vols 40 Bama 17.

Excellent point. I got on here after the Florida game and posted about how I'd wasted my last thousand bucks on this team as long as Dooley was coach here. That is the wrong attitude, and your post makes a great point. Penn State has been competetive this year when a lot of people didn't think they would, and fan support may be why.

Some of the so called fans on here are just wimps! For those of us who lived through, and remember, the Bama win streak from 71 until we finally won in 82, we've been there before. We did't like it, but we never stopped getting fired up for the game and I can honestly say that every year I convinced myself that we were going to get the win no matter how big an underdog we were. And that's what it's going to take, fans and players that believe despite the odds, that we can get the victory. GO VOLS - BEAT BAMA!

So your perspective is to compare UT's troubles to those of a too big to fail instutution that actively covered up for a retired employee who was a serial, predatory, pedophile for the sake of protecting an illusion. The illusion of integrity, honor, and winning all wrapped up in a single human being who was hoisted upon a pedestal as if he were pure and spotless?

I just want to make sure that I understand.

A painting on a rock doesn't make Dooley a better coach. It's called "Deflect not Correct". What in this world has happened to make accountability wrong?

It is unfair to Dooley to make beating either Bama or SC and going 4-0 in Nov a requirement to keep his job. No matter how badly Bama or SC thumps us, it should be irrelevant. Bottom line, Dooley showed all we needed to see in Lexington last year. This year was never about improving a little. It was a chance to change our minds. Without a miracle, his chances are gone.

I wish him the best, but I believe his fate was sealed in Starkville. Having said that, he has a chance to get 1 more year if Hart cannot get a deal in principle with a crowd pleasing hire. But I don't see Dooley having any chance whatsoever to solidify himself long term in Knoxville. I hope Hart has already found his guy because, while 2012 was about whether Dooley could turn the corner, 2013 will be about which week Dooley gets fired.

The "so-called" fans (as you like to refer to) aren't trying to destroy the team. The UT Athletic Department did that all on their own. Thanks for trying though.

Those of us who have graduated from UT, donated to UT, and paid $$ to attend games deserve a better product in the coaching positions, as well as, they product on the field. You are just a poser. Sorry man.

To quote Col. Jessup, "You want the truth ... you can't handle the truth." The truth is that when Derek Dooley got here he found a program in shambles, thanks to the arrogance of fans like you and self-centered coaches like Phillip Fulmer and Lane Kiffin. Read the words carefully ... Fulmer and Kiffin left OUR UT football program in shambles. Absolute, total shambles. Coach Dooley had no choice but to play 18 freshmen his first year in order to even field a team. Yet dorks like you come on here and DEMAND, yes DEMAND, that Dooley be fired becasue he can't fulfill your expectations. Expectations that you expect to be fulfilled by 18, 19, and 20 year old kids. Well, little fellar, ain't you just special ... you play keyboard tyrant and DEMAND that Dooley be fired. Big freakin' whoop.

No, little fellar, I don't like the shape our UT football program is in either. But coming on here and ranting and raving about fans who are trying to show support for the Vols is not going to accomplish a dang thing ... except to prove that you are an ignorant fool.

Tell me something eddyuardooooo, if the KNS demanded that you post your real name, your real address, and your real telephone number in your public profile, then what would you come on here and DEMAND? You'd probably be crying for your mommy because big, ugly, angry people are knocking on your door DEMANDING that you come out and "play." But, no, you sit behind a keyboard and DEMAND that Coach Dooley be fired and trash fans who support the Vols. And that's how you make yourself feel important ... hiding behind a keyboard.

How about this ... I DEMAND that you STFU. I'm talking to YOU eddyuardooooo.
