It's true: Ohioans love Urban Meyer almost as much as they love butter.

So, it's a delight for me — the man who loves butter — to pass on news of Urban Meyer taking his final form today at Ohio's state fair in Columbus.

As you can imagine, Urban Meyer was over the moon to be casted in butter form.

His likeness in butter — along with a buttery Brutus Buckeye, two Ohio State University football helmets and the national championship trophy — were unveiled at noon today with a flourish in the Dairy Building at the Ohio Expo Center. 

The football-related sculptures, along with the traditional cow and calf, will be on display in a glass refrigerated case throughout the 12-day fair, which opens Wednesday.

“It humbles you, and it’s a great honor,” Meyer told the American Dairy Association Mideast, which sponsors the display. 

This is all part of a fair tradition where professional butter sculptors — my god, what am I even doing with my life? — are brought in to shape butter into the form of a cow, a calf, and "other figurines." 

Consider the tradition's crowning achievement unlocked.
