Blame Steve Spurrier.

Before the Head Ball Coach returned to his alma mater to coach the Gators in 1990, the SEC was a ground-and-pound league predicated on defense and running the ball. The stars were running backs named Bo and Herschel and linebackers that tried to knock their blocks off.

After Spurrier brought the Fun’N’Gun to the SEC, nothing was the same. All 10 of the league’s best passing seasons have come since Spurrier joined the league, with nearly half of the 10 made up of Spurrier-coached Gators teams.

Let’s take a look at those 10 top passing offenses of all-time.

10. Florida, 1996 — 4,007 yards: While it wasn’t the most prolific offense of the Spurrier era, the Gators still broke through to win the 1996 national championship. An offense led by Danny Wuerrfel (3,625 yards, 39 TD, 13 INT) put up points in bunches, topping the nation with 47 points per game. Future pros Reidel Anthony and Ike Hilliard combined for more than 2,000 receiving yards and 28 touchdowns.

9. Kentucky, 1997 — 4,019 yards: Hal Mumme’s first team at Kentucky wasn’t very good, finishing just 5-6, but they sure could air it out. Employing the Air Raid attack, Mumme’s team threw for more than 365 yards per game, thanks to a breakout season from future No. 1 overall pick Tim Couch. Couch led the SEC in every major passing category that year, and seven Wildcats receivers caught 30 or more passes.

8. Florida, 1993 — 4,072 yards: While winning Spurrier’s second SEC title and the first of four in a row, the Gators used two quarterbacks, Wuerffel and Terry Dean, to pilot a lethal offense that scored 39.5 points per game. Six players caught 20 or more passes, including 1,000-yard rusher Errict Recht.

7. Georgia, 2013 — 4,085 yards: Georgia led the SEC in rushing in 2014, but just a year prior the Bulldogs featured the most prolific passing offense in school history. SEC all-time passing leader Aaron Murray was brilliant all year, completing 65 percent of his passes for more than 3,000 yards, while backup Hutson Mason tacked on nearly another 1,000 yards. The Dawgs spread the wealth, with 12 players registering 100 or more yards receiving.

6. Texas A&M, 2012 — 4,114 yards: Johnny Manziel’s Heisman season was one of the record books. On top of leading the SEC in rushing, Manziel was second in passing yards to Murray. Texas A&M threw for 300 or more yards in eight of its 13 games, including topping 400 yards twice, as they rolled to an 11-2 mark.

5. Florida, 1995 — 4,330 yards: Wuerffel gave a preview for the Gators’ national title season with perhaps his best college season, posting the highest passer rating of his career. Hilliard and Chris Doering both went over 1,000 yards receiving, while Wuerffel’s backup, Eric Kresser, tacked another 992 yards onto the team’s passing total as the Gators won yet another SEC title.

4. Arkansas, 2010 — 4,338 yards: The Razorbacks transitioned from a run-heavy team to a devastating aerial attack in just a few years when Bobby Petrino took over for Houston Nutt. Ryan Mallett was unstoppable in his final college season, completing nearly 65 percent of his passes with 32 touchdowns and 12 interceptions. An astounding five receivers had more than 600 receiving yards for the 10-3 Razorbacks.

3. Florida, 2001 — 4,457 yards: Spurrier left the college game for the NFL on a high note, with his final Florida team standing as his most prolific passing attack. Rex Grossman threw for just under 3,900 yards, most ever for the program, while both Jabar Gaffney and Reche Caldwell, future NFLers both, had more than 1,000 yards receiving. The Gators didn’t defend their SEC title, but did finish 10-2 and ranked No. 3 in the country in the final polls.

2. Kentucky, 1998 — 4,534 yards: Mumme and Couch’s second season together was even more prolific than the first. UK improved to 7-5 as Couch threw for more than 4,200 yards while tacking on 36 touchdowns and 15 interceptions. Craig Yeast emerged as Couch’s go-to receiver, picking up 1,311 yards and 14 touchdowns. For his efforts, Couch was a consensus All-American, the SEC Player of the Year and the No. 1 overall pick in the 1999 NFL draft.

1. Texas A&M, 2013 — 4,593 yards: While he didn’t repeat as Heisman winner, Manziel’s second and final season piloting Kevin Sumlin’s offense was even better than the first, statistically at least. Manziel threw for 400 more yards than he did the previous season, topping 4,100 for the season, combined with 37 touchdown passes against 13 picks as he toned down his running a bit. Mike Evans had his second straight 1,000-yard season, as both he and Manziel, along with left tackle Luke Joeckel — the triumvirate that made up the core of the passing offense — were all first-round selections the following spring.
