    We're back. Crazy day here in Mircoville last Thursday so no time. No google, play or don't. Easy questions today.

    You beat me to it on No. 2.

    But who was the first Iowa QB to finish No. 2 in the Heisman balloting?

    EDIT: It was Randy Duncan, not Scott Duncan.

    That would have been the '73 Mets (82-79), had they won Game Six or Seven in Oakland.

    I'm going to guess the '69 Mets were the only team to win the World Series after never before finishing .500.
