    I've seen this work on here before for other people, so I'll try it.

    Can we get some photos of Troy Smith with the Heisman? The ceremony's been over for 90 minutes.

    Hahaha, my nefarious strategy is taking over the world!

    Seriously, this is a bit ridiculous. Were press photogs not allowed in or something?

    We get a photo of some drunk Buckeye fans in a bar, but nothing of the trophy and winner? They could've let him pose for it this afternoon.

    i'm really wondering if something went wrong with the AP photog or something. cause now we're getting photos of him walking outside in Times Square AFTER the presentation.

    ESPN has a wireimages photo on its main page. Fuckers.

    Maybe they're making sure to get the cutline just right:

    Ohio State University Quarterback Troy Smith, left, of Columbus, Ohio, holds the 85th Annual Heisman Trophy as Old F. Fart, right, of the Downtown New York Athletic Club, of New York, congratulates Smith.

    They're really on the ball tonight. Now they've removed an earlier photo because "Ooops, that's not Smith. That's Darren McFadden."

    After nights like this, they should be flooded with hundreds of calls on Monday.

    Maybe the photogs were in the wrong area of the Hard Rock Cafe, where the media was camped out.

    No offense to anyone on desk, but wouldn't a file action photo be more interesting anyway?

    That's what I ended up using.

    Can't we use both? Wouldn't that be ideal?
