One Year In and Ohio State Fans are Already Making Busts of Urban Meyer

This Urban Meyer bust would look great in any front yard.

All Urban Meyer did was show up and go 12-0 in his first season at Ohio State, so if you're Port Clinton sculptor and Buckeye fan Andy Sacksteder, you do the only appropriate thing and create a bust of the coach.

The bust was on display at the inaugural Cheryl Jacobs Waters TBDBITL Golf Invitational, a fundraiser for the Ohio State University Marching Band, held at Stone Oak Country Club outside Toledo.

Sacksteder said he had no plans to sell the sculpture but mentioned that it would go for $4,000 or more if he bronzed it.

This is actually the second sculpture of an Ohio State coach from Sacksteder. An earlier bronze of Woody Hayes stands outside College Traditions on Lane Avenue.

I would call that Red Forman before I called that Urban Meyer.

Hey, at least it doesn't look like "Fetus Head".

I don't mean to sound critical, because it is a pretty amazing piece of craftsmanship, but it really doesn't look anything like Urban to me.  That said, if I tried to make something like that, it likely would end up looking like a "Fetus Head", or worse.

agreed...its close in some parts but way off in others...the nose in particular looks weird, but overall a solid piece of work.

I had to do a comparison. No way! Looks horrible. He looks like he is 60+ and face is saging. Good cause but someone will get ripped off!

I saw a UFO once.......it told me to have a goodyear!

And an unregistered +1 for you.

Just had to know the thread was going to venture down this path, or it'd have been a bust....

Hah!  Missed opportunity on the Buckshot subheading, though.  "It's very impressive" would have been a nice touch.

I made a bust of Bruce Willis once...

At first I thought she had gotten a little too much sun on the left bust, then up pops Brucie and I see it's just his forehead lines.......He looks like a piston on some kind of internal boob combustion engine.......

I will say this:  If you morphed Urban with a young Woody Hayes (sans the glasses), the result might look something like this.

I'm really glad that I'm not the only one who thinks this doesn't really look like Urban.

I can appreciate how hard this has to be. I could do nothing of the sort. That said, I have the opinion of doing something right, or not at all. For every accurate feature there's one that's way off. Seems like it should be a rough draft.

How much to have a night of sleep with this?

Considering you previous post......this came across just a little strange.

He tried to do a bust of Coach Coombs, but no one has ever actually seen him standing still

... and every time someone stops to look at it, it yells, "whatcha gawking at sweetheart!?  Move ur Butt!!" at extreme volumes.

It looks a lot like a Mr. Jon Voight the actor playing Coach Meyer in an upcoming film about a miraculous run through two undefeated seasons.

I think this should go, Godfather style, into Saban's bed.
