165 ballots: Bradford extends lead, still too close to call

With our evening update, mostly via email correspondence with official voters and tips from our loyal (and patient) readers, we're now up to 165 ballots.

Sam Bradford has extended his lead, with a projected vote total of 60% of the maximum possible; while Tim Tebow has slipped slightly to 55% and Colt McCoy gained slightly to 52%.

For the the first time, Bradford has taken a lead in the hard count (not just the regionally-adjusted projection), with 300 points to Tebow's 294 and McCoy's 263.

In terms of the regional breakdown, Tebow continues to lead strongly in the South and narrowly in the Midwest - while coming in second in the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast, and third in the West and Southwest. Bradford has a solid lead in the Southwest, Mid-Atlantic and Northeast; is narrowly in second in the West, and is in third in the Midwest and South. McCoy is leading narrowly in the West, is barely in second in the South and Midwest, solidly in second in the Southwest, and is in third in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic. (Phew!)

Stay tuned. Another update shortly.

This is a done deal. You might as well call it Kari. "Sam Bradford is the projected Heisman Trophy winner."
