4. Tim Tebow (Florida)
There have been many great college football players in recent years, but perhaps none of them have been as famous — for many reasons — as Tim Tebow. The three-time All-American, two-time SEC Player of the Year and two-time BCS national champion won the Heisman Trophy in 2007.
But in addition to everything he accomplished while playing for Urban Meyer and the University of Florida Gators, one of his most signature moments has to be the infamous “promise” speech he delivered after a loss against SEC rival Ole Miss, which helped spur the Gators to a National Championship win over the University of Oklahoma.
