So every so often, I pop over and check out the rock livestream to see if it's changed or what not.
This week I notice it has been completely painted to coincide with the reporting of the fine players and members of the Pride Of The Southland...they also did a lot of pressure washing / cleaning / painting of the concrete area around the rock.

It got me to thinking, we should start a thread with what the rock changes to each week during the season...so here it goes !!!

I remember when we used to have designated rock painters that would paint cool stuff for recruits when they’d come in. A couple of them were really good. We would pitch in to help buy the paint

I can almost hear Sean Connery say...."welcome to the rock" with the music trailer in the background...

Maybe she can come back work for the university and if her off time she can keep up the rock with paint bought by the school.
Yes. I know it has been tradition for one of the students to paint the rock each year, but Payton's work was special and nobody has been able to do it as good since she graduated! They should commission her each season to come paint the rock for each home game, if she's willing to do it. Its not like they dont have the $$ to pay her! Payton's murals were true works of art! Compared to her work, everyone else's since has looked like low rent graffiti.

Sorry for the grainy picture due to the current rain situation in Knoxville.
Seems like the rock has been painted to advertise / support The Walk event this weekend at the Knoxville CC.

She is definitely missed. I hope someone paints over it before kickoff.

Spyre needs to put together an NIL deal for Payton Miller.
This 1000% - or some local business (paint, hardware, art gallery, etc.) sponsor her and others to paint the rock every Thursday during the season.
I wouldn't even care if they got some advertisement out of the deal.

Well, I give this Rock two thumbs way down. This is the current state, 12 minutes before we whip Ball State. Zero effort applied:
