Wuerffel Danny Wuerffel was the last Gator to win the Heisman, taking home the trophy in 1996 after a fantastic season in which he finished with a QB rating of 170.6. That Florida team averaged 46 points a game and won the national title after beating Florida State in the Sugar Bowl.

Rexgrossman One other Gator who certainly deserved to be a Heisman finalist in the years since '96? That'd be Rex Grossman in 2001. The bottom line is that Grossman lost because he was a sophomore and the winner, QB Eric Couch of Nebraska, was a senior. Grossman threw for more than 300 yards in every game but one -- when he threw for 290.
