Brilliant idea. Glad to see Frazier is listening to Dog Fan. Now if only he listened to me and hired Bret Bielema.

RE: Latest Edition of Frazier's Corner
I don't think Frazier listened to me because I stopped communicating with Athletics a few years ago. I used to offer marketing and other suggestions but stopped after I realized I was talking to a wall and wasting my time.

Bobbleheads are extremely collectible, and fans love to display them. And, when people display them, that's advertising and publicity! Adults and kids love them. There is even a National Bobblehead Museum. These bobbleheads are not the cheap looking ones we used to buy at the ballpark many years ago. These are quite well made.

NIU should expand their bobblehead offerings. All they need is a sponsor to pay for them, as is the case with the Victor E. bobblehead. How about Fatty's, since they make a ton off of NIU fans? We have enough sponsors to hit up to pay for these. They should do one of Coaches Hammock, Montgomery, and Carlsen. Not sure if NCAA rules would allow them to do a player, but how would you have liked to have a Sutton Smith bobblehead? Or even one of Rod Carey that you could have ripped the head off of?

They can give these out at games and/or use them as a gift for season ticket purchases/renewals. This is not rocket science, and it is easily done. The Victor E. bobblehead is fantastic. Now, Athletics, please keep 'em coming!

At least they aren't brought to us by Illini Tire.

They are one-of-a-kind ... 2,000 times. But at least STF set up a cool promotion.

If 2000 of these exist, that would be a rare item in 10 years. Im not sure what would make a greater and more valuable collectable right now though, a Victor E bobblehead, or a real live breathing NIU basketball fan.
These boobleheads will have no monetary value just sentimental value. I will bet someone will have one listed on ebay the next day for $49.99. Today there are over 130,000 booblheads listed on ebay for many colleges and universities.

I can't wait for the Charlie Sadler bobblehead. Or the Judson. Or the Patton...

If the bobble heads become a "thing" with the students, it could take off. I just wish they would stick around for the game. If they could come up with something that the students really could get into these type of promotions could work.
