You remember Ron Hunter, right? Of course you do. He's Georgia State's basketball coach, the one who tore his Achilles tendon while celebrating the Panthers' Sun Belt Conference championship. He then followed it up by famously falling off his chair when his son, R.J., hit a shot to upset Baylor in the NCAA tournament.
Hunter's team hasn't been in the spotlight this season, but Georgia State's marketing department is making sure people don't forget Hunter's spill by offering it in bobblehead form to the first 500 fans at Tuesday's game against Middle Tennessee.

Can't get to Atlanta in time for the game? Not to worry, the bobblehead sells for $25 via the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum. A dollar of each sale goes to Samaritan's Feet, a charity that provides shoes to underprivileged children.
The Panthers are off to a 6-2 start and were picked to finish second in the Sun Belt behind Louisiana Lafayette.
