Florida State football film review: Boston College 2nd Quarter

Stacy Revere

FSU outscored Boston College 17-7 in the quarter. BC seems to be trying to keep it close as opposed to trying to win.

Down Yard Play O-form D-form Analysis
Bc 1-10 at Bc37 Start of 2nd quarter, clock 15:00.
Bc 1-10 at Bc37 Rettig,C pass complete to Swigert,B for 2 yards to the BC39 (JONES, C.). 20 gun 425 Check down to the back who is blanketed by Christian Jones.
Bc 2-8 at Bc39 Rettig,C deep in pass incomplete to Amidon,A, clock 14:13. 21 43 Play action shot play. Nobody open so Rettig throws it away.
Bc 3-8 at Bc39 Williams,A rush right for no gain to the BC39 (BROOKS, T.), clock 13:51. 11 425 BC tries to get a toss play into the boundary, but Terrence Brooks arrives in run support with bad intentions.
Bc 4-8 at Bc39 Levano,G punt 45 yards to the FS16, out-of-bounds.
Drive: 4 plays, 13 yards, TOP 01:34
Fs 1-10 at Fs16 FLORIDA STATE drive start at 13:31.
Fs 1-10 at Fs16 Manuel, EJ sideline pass complete to BENJAMIN, K. for 7 yards to the FS23 (Jones,B), clock 13:15. 11 gun 43 Half rollout, quick out to Benjamin.
Fs 2-3 at Fs23 THOMPSON, C. rush left for 3 yards to the FS26, 1ST DOWN FS (Clancy,N;Noel,J), clock 12:32. 11 43 Outside zone. Josue Matias overruns his block on the second level, but Thompson is able to run through the tackle for a first down.
Fs 1-10 at Fs26 Manuel, EJ deep pass complete to BENJAMIN, K. for 46 yards to the BC28, 1ST DOWN F 21 gun 43 Play action post route. Offensive line gives EJ all day to throw. Nice reaction to the ball in the air by Benjamin. If the ball is out front it might go the distance, but that's picking nits. Fisher said this play was actually designed for O'Leary on the corner route, but two guys ran with him and EJ made a good read to hit Benjamin.
Fs 1-10 at Bc28 THOMPSON, C. rush over left tackle for 9 yards to the BC19 (Joy,T;Simmons,J), clock 11:31. 21 43 Inside zone and the FSU OL just dominates BC. The running lane is not wide, but it is 5-6 yards upfield by the time Thompson gets through it.
Fs 2-1 at Bc19 Manuel, EJ screen pass complete to THOMPSON, C. for 1 yard to the BC18, 1ST DOWN FS (Noel,J), PENALTY BC personal foul (Noel,J) 9 yards to the BC9, clock 11:12. 21 43 Boot action. O'Leary misses his block but EJ is able to get it to Thompson in the flat for the first down.
Fs 1-1 at Bc09 1st and 9.
Fs 1-G at Bc09 WILDER, J. rush over right guard for 2 yards to the BC7 (Edebali,K;Rudolph,J), clock 10:34. 21 gun 43 EJ checks to an outside zone to the slot. FSU has a numbers advantage there, but Watson allows the backside DT to get too far to the playside and Wilder is force to cut it back into a bunch of unblocked defenders.
Fs 2-G at Bc07 Manuel, EJ screen pass complete to WILDER, J. for 7 yards to the BC0, TOUCHDOWN, clock 10:14. 21 gun 43 First read on this play is a corner route to O'Leary, but both the linebacker and safety run with it, leaving Wilder uncovered in the flats and he makes an acrobatic dive to score.
HOPKINS, D. kick attempt good.
Florida State 21, Boston College 0
Drive: 7 plays, 84 yards, TOP 03:25
HOPKINS, D. kickoff 65 yards to the BC0, Evans,S return 23 yards to the BC23, fumble forced by DARBY, R., fumble by Evans,S recovered by BC Team at BC22, out-of-bounds.
Bc 1-10 at Bc22 BOSTON COLLEGE drive start at 10:06, BC ball on BC22.
Bc 1-10 at Bc22 Rettig,C sideline pass incomplete to Amidon,A, QB hurry by CARRADINE, C., clock 10:01. 11 gun 425 Tank whips the BC tackle with a swim move and Rettig throws it away from the pocket. There's no BC receiver within 15 yards of where he throws it when he pulls the trigger. Ridiculous that they're getting away with this.
Bc 2-10 at Bc22 Dudeck, D rush over left tackle for no gain to the BC22 (LAWRENCE, N. L.;CARRADINE, C.), clock 09:28. 11 425 Lead draw play and there is an alley for the back but he just doesn't see it and runs into the pile.
Bc 3-10 at Bc22 Rettig,C crossing pass complete to Coleman,J for 5 yards to the BC27 (DARBY, R.), clock 08:55. 11 gun 425 FSU is in zone here and Rettig completes an underneath drag route. Darby with the nice open field tackle to prevent any YAC.
Bc 4-5 at Bc27 Levano,G punt 31 yards to the FS42, downed.
Drive: 3 plays, 5 yards, TOP 01:38
Fs 1-10 at Fs42 FLORIDA STATE drive start at 08:28.
Fs 1-10 at Fs42 Manuel, EJ flag pass complete to SHAW, K. for 48 yards to the BC10, 1ST DOWN FS, out-of-bounds (Asprilla,M), clock 08:08. 10 gun 43 FSU shows orbit motion here. BC can't rush the passer at all. EJ shows nice patience and hits the over route all the way on the other side after vertical routes have cleared out the safeties.
Fs 1-G at Bc10 Manuel, EJ rush right for 4 yards to the BC6, out-of-bounds, clock 07:56. 10 gun 43 Looks like a check from EJ. FSU runs QB sweep from a different formation for the first time all year. If Devonta Freeman gets a little more of the safety it would have gone inside the five.
Fs 2-G at Bc06 Manuel, EJ crossing pass complete to BENJAMIN, K. for 6 yards to the BC0, TOUCHDOWN, clock 07:27. 21 gun 43 Jimbo loves throwing to the back of the end zone in the middle of the field, especially with a tall receiver. Just a simple flattened post route and with the linebackers biting up on the playaction, there's a giant hole in the defense.
HOPKINS, D. kick attempt good.
Florida State 28, Boston College 0
Drive: 3 plays, 58 yards, TOP 01:06 With BC generating no pass rush at all and playing base coverages poorly, this is basically 7 on 7 for the FSU offense.
HOPKINS, D. kickoff 62 yards to the BC3, Elliott,D return 10 yards to the BC13 (WILDER, J.). Great coffin corner kick bounces and stops right by the sideline at the 2 yard line.
Bc 1-10 at Bc13 BOSTON COLLEGE drive start at 07:22.
Bc 1-10 at Bc13 Williams,A rush right for 13 yards to the BC26, 1ST DOWN BC (WILLIAMS, V.), clock 07:12. 11 425 Draw play and Newberry overruns it. They've run this play enough that FSU's ends should be looking for it by now.
Bc 1-10 at Bc26 PENALTY FS offside defense (MCALLISTER, D.) 5 yards to the BC31, clock 06:49.
Bc 1-5 at Bc31 Rettig,C deep pass incomplete to Amidon,A (BROOKS, T.), QB hurry by DARBY, R., clock 06:22. 11 gun 425 FSU overloads the protection and gets Darby free on a corner blitz. Rettig rolls away, sets and heaves it up but Darby wrecks him as he's throwing and it is nearly intercepted. Other than the safeties and Tyler Hunter, this is FSU's 2nd string defense.
Bc 2-5 at Bc31 Williams,A rush up middle for 9 yards to the BC40, 1ST DOWN BC (WILLIAMS, V.), clock 06:16. 11 gun 425 Zone blitz, yet another draw play.
Bc 1-10 at Bc40 Williams,A rush over left guard for 7 yards to the BC47 (JONES, C.;MOODY, N.), clock 05:31. 21 43 Inside zone with a delayed handoff. Nick Moody gets caught inside and allows a cutback lane for the back.
Bc 2-3 at Bc47 Williams,A rush up middle for 5 yards to the FS48, 1ST DOWN BC (JONES, C.), clock 05:14. 21? 43 BC went hurry up here. The camera wasn't ready for it and the FSU defense wasn't either. Looks like an inside zone.
Bc 1-10 at Fs48 Rettig,C sideline pass complete to Evans,S for 3 yards to the FS45, out-of-bounds, clock 04:44. 10 gun 425 BC splits out their tight ends and run a quick rub concept for a short gain.
Bc 2-7 at Fs45 Rettig,C screen pass complete to Dudeck, D for loss of 9 yards to the BC46 (SMITH, TEL.), clock 04:24. 11 gun 425 Why do teams keep trying to run screen plays? Don't they watch film? Telvin Smith has an entire highlight reel of nothing but blowing up screen plays at this point.
Bc 3-16 at Bc46 Rettig,C sideline pass complete to Amidon,A for 22 yards to the FS32, 1ST DOWN BC (WILLIAMS, K.), clock 03:51. 11 gun 326 Nice job by Rettig to escape the pocket and fit this throw in between the safety and corner. Karlos Williams with the monster hit, but he could have reacted faster and possibly broken it up.
Bc 1-10 at Fs32 Dudeck, D rush up middle for loss of 6 yards to the FS38 (JERNIGAN, T.), clock 03:20. 11 gun 425 Much better defense on the delayed handoff. Carradine comes under control and doesn't allow the big cutback lane. Timmy Jernigan and Everette Dawkins get off their blocks and make the tackle in the backfield.
Bc 2-16 at Fs38 Rettig,C sideline pass incomplete to Evans,S, PENALTY FS pass interference (WILLIAMS, V.) 5 yards to the FS33, 1ST DOWN BC, NO PLAY, clock 02:54. 10 gun 425 Vince definitely holds the back coming out of the backfield, but the ball is thrown to a different guy. Should be defensive holding, not PI. Same result, either way.
Bc 1-10 at Fs33 Rettig,C sideline pass incomplete to Amidon,A, PENALTY FS pass interference (JONES, C.) 11 yards to the FS22, 1ST DOWN BC, NO PLAY, clock 02:49. 11 gun 425 Cameras don't show what happened, but Rhodes appears to be giving Jones the business about this one, so I'd guess it was legit.
Bc 1-10 at Fs22 Timeout Florida State, clock 02:49.
Bc 1-10 at Fs22 Williams,A rush up middle for 4 yards to the FS18 (DAWKINS, E.), clock 02:34. 11 425 Again the FSU DL is now reading the delayed handoffs better. Everette Dawkins is waiting on Williams at the line, but he's such a load he falls forward for 4 yards.
Bc 2-6 at Fs18 Rettig,C timing route pass incomplete to Coleman,J, clock 02:04. 11 gun 425 Playaction pass, Tyler Hunter is in perfect position. No chance.
Bc 3-6 at Fs18 Rettig,C middle pass complete to Swigert,B for 18 yards to the FS0, 1ST DOWN BC, TOUCHDOWN, clock 01:56. 11 gun 425 FSU sends 7 rushers and BC hits the angle route out of the backfield. This is the right play against the defense and should go for a first down, but it's two missed open field tackles by Brooks and Larmacus Joyner that make it a touchdown.
Freese,N kick attempt good.
Florida State 28, Boston College 7
Drive: 12 plays, 87 yards, TOP 05:33 FSU bailed BC out on a few occasions when they had them behind the sticks. Similar to NC State's last TD drive. When you get them in behind schedule you've got to get off the field.
Freese,N kickoff 47 yards to the FS18, JOYNER, L. return -6 yards to the FS12 (McCaffrey,J). Not Lamarcus Joyner's finest moment. Lack of focus starting to rear its head.
Fs 1-10 at Fs12 FLORIDA STATE drive start at 01:49.
Fs 1-10 at Fs12 THOMPSON, C. rush over right end for 14 yards to the FS26, 1ST DOWN FS (Joy,T), clock 01:42. 20 gun 43 Zone read and FSU opens up a massive hole. FSU could absolutely run BC out of the stadium if they wanted.
Fs 1-10 at Fs26 Manuel, EJ post pass intercepted by Noel,J at the BC49, Noel,J return 13 yards to the FS38 (STORK, B.). 10 gun 43 Same 2 man vertical switch route they've run several times already. Nice route and a perfect throw is baubled by Rashad Greene and intercepted. This is the risk you take when you call the game aggressively with a big lead.
Drive: 2 plays, 14 yards, TOP 00:28
Bc 1-10 at Fs38 BOSTON COLLEGE drive start at 01:21.
Bc 1-10 at Fs38 Rettig,C sideline pass complete to Dudeck, D for 3 yards to the FS35 (WILLIAMS, V.), PENALTY BC holding (Cleary,E) 10 yards to the FS48, NO PLAY, clock 01:10. 11 425 BC tries to run the coverage off and hit a swing to the flat. Nothing doing. BC gets called for holding on maybe their least egregious hold of the half. Makeup call? We'll take it.
Bc 1-20 at Fs48 Rettig,C middle pass complete to Swigert,B for 19 yards to the FS29 (BROOKS, T.), clock 00:40. 21 gun 425 Double A gap zone blitz again. BC completes the same angle route for a big gain. You wanted blitz? You got blitz.
Bc 2-1 at Fs29 Timeout Boston College, clock 00:40.
Bc 2-1 at Fs29 Williams,A rush over left end for 8 yards to the FS21, 1ST DOWN BC (CARRADINE, C.), clock 00:34. 11 425 Unacceptable degree of push from the BC OL. Vince Williams gets caught up in the mess of the DL being pushed backwards.
Bc 1-10 at Fs21 Rettig,C crossing pass intercepted by JOYNER, L. at the FS11, JOYNER, L. return 33 yards to the FS44, out-of-bounds. 11 425 Slant/flat concept. Rettig gets greedy. The flat is open and the slant is NOT. Waisome makes a good break and breaks it up. Joyner grabs it in the air and is robbed of a brilliant pick 6 by the sideline.
Drive: 3 plays, 17 yards, TOP 01:09 Getting this stop to halt BC's momentum was big.
Fs 1-10 at Fs44 FLORIDA STATE drive start at 00:12.
Official Review: Previous play is under review.
Official Review: Call on the field is out of bounds at the 44.
Official Review: Call on the field is confirmed.
Fs 1-10 at Fs44 Manuel, EJ crossing pass complete to SMITH, R. for 10 yards to the BC46, 1ST DOWN FS (Rudolph,J), clock 00:12. 10 gun 326 FSU runs the coverage off and hits Smith on an underneath crosser. Rodney needs to stick his foot in the ground and get the damn first down instead of reversing field here.
Fs 1-10 at Bc46 Timeout Florida State, clock 00:12.
Fs 1-10 at Bc46 Manuel, EJ sideline pass complete to SMITH, R. for 13 yards to the BC33, 1ST DOWN FS (Lawrence,A), clock 00:05. 10 gun 335 With BC playing prevent, way off the line, EJ again throws it to Rodney Smith on a crossing pattern. May be the same play.
Fs 1-10 at Bc33 Timeout Florida State, clock 00:05.
Fs 1-10 at Bc33 Timeout Boston College, clock 00:05.
Fs 1-10 at Bc33 HOPKINS, D. field goal attempt from 51 GOOD, clock 00:00.
Florida State 31, Boston College 7
Fs 1-G at Fs35 End of half, clock 00:00. Some sloppy play, especially once it got to 28-0. But the team stayed aggressive and it paid off overall. BC is also really terrible. Their strategy seems to be to lose with as much dignity as possible.
Drive: 3 plays, 23 yards, TOP 00:12
