Florida State football film review: Maryland 2nd quarter

Every week we break down the result of the previous game. Who really played well for the Seminoles against Maryland? Read to find out. FSU played at a high level in the first quarter, despite holding only a 7-0 lead. The high level of play would continue in later quarters, and the points would come.

Note: there are certain schematic and tendency things we do not discuss in these reviews out of respect for our sources, the school and coaching staff.

D/D Yard Formation Result Analysis
1-10 at Fs34 3-3-5 Reid rush left for 1 yard to the FS33 (SMITH, TERR.), clock 14:43. Corner blitz is just not a good defense to run this counter play against and FSU gets a bit lucky here.
2-9 at Fs33 2-4-5 Diggs deep pass incomplete to Long (RAMSEY, J.), clock 14:22. I don't get why Maryland would call this here. WR reverse pass, Williams stays fairly close to his man and Ramsey's closing speed is very good.
3-9 at Fs33 3-2-6 Brown deep pass incomplete to Long, clock 14:16. FSU bluffs with six, brings four, and plays man down the field. William has excellent coverage on Long deep. The throw could be perfect here and I'm still not sure he could get it. Marylan blocks this fairly well.
4-9 at Fs33 Craddock field goal attempt from 51 MISSED - hit left upright, spot at FS33, clock 14:11.
Drive: 5 plays, 40 yards, TOP 01:13
FLORIDA STATE drive start at 14:11.
New center for FSU is #62-Barron.
1-10 at Fs33 21 WINSTON, J. rush QX for 1 yard to the FS34 (Robinson), clock 13:52. Boot to the field, could have thrown it to O'Leary, but this is great coverage by Maryland.
2-9 at Fs34 21 gun WILLIAMS, K. rush left for no gain to the FS34 (Bowers), clock 13:28. Erving poor use of his hands and loses his man who gets penetration on the inside zone.
3-9 at Fs34 10 gun WINSTON, J. sacked for loss of 9 yards to the FS25 (Monroe), clock 13:01. Winston holds this ball for a long time and the sack is somewhat on the offensive line but also on him. Needs to get rid of it.
4-18 at Fs25 BEATTY, C. punt 39 yards to the UMD36, fair catch by Likely. Beatty seems slow in delivery. This is almost blocked. He does get one off, though.
Drive: 3 plays, minus 8 yards, TOP 01:43
MARYLAND drive start at 12:28.
1-10 at Umd36 3-3-5 B.Ross rush right for 2 yards to the UMD38 (SMITH, TEL.;MCDANIEL, J.), clock 11:59. Good discipline v. the zone read and McDaniel guesses the snap count, I think.
2-8 at Umd38 3-3-5 Brown deep pass complete to Diggs for 19 yards to the FS43, 1ST DOWN UMD, clock 11:30. Awesome individual play by diggs. Joyner has good coverage and Diggs shruggs him and undercuts it.
1-10 at Fs43 3-3-5 Brown middle pass incomplete to L.Jacobs, clock 11:20. FSU in base cover three as Maryland motions to empty. Just a bad throw by the QB on the curl. Not really great defense.
2-10 at Fs43 3-3-5 B.Ross rush left for loss of 1 yard to the FS44 (MCDANIEL, J.;JONES, C.), clock 10:56. TV said the back misses the hole, but that's wrong. The real play here is by McDaniel who whips the double team and the back follows the original design of the play, which is to cut it outside. McDaniel ruins that for him. And even if he hits it where the announcer wants him to hit it, he'd be tackled for Nada by Telvin Smith, who has the momentum advantage.
3-11 at Fs44 4-1-6 Brown sideline pass incomplete to Diggs, clock 10:34. Miscommunication between Diggs and QB, but Darby has good zone coverage.
4-11 at Fs44 Renfro punt 44 yards to the FS0, touchback.
Drive: 5 plays, 20 yards, TOP 02:02 Excellent defensive series.
FLORIDA STATE drive start at 10:26.
1-10 at Fs20 21 FREEMAN, D. rush up middle for 1 yard to the FS21 (Bowers), clock 10:12. I don't like Freeman tip-toeing this, and Erving needs to stay on his block longer. Should have had 4+ yards.
2-9 at Fs21 11 gun WINSTON, J. slant pass complete to GREENE, R. for 15 yards to the FS36, 1ST DOWN FS (Nixon), clock 09:49. Excellent pass pro and Winston hits Greene on the crosser.
1-10 at Fs36 11 gun WINSTON, J. middle pass complete to SHAW, K. for 11 yards to the FS47, 1ST DOWN FS (Likely), clock 09:19. Another blitz, another quick throw. Shaw good moves to get the first. Well done. Surgical.
1-10 at Fs47 11 gun WINSTON, J. middle pass incomplete to O'LEARY, N., clock 08:55. Good blitz pickup, should be a big play to O'Leary but he launches high. Bad throw.
2-10 at Fs47 22 WILLIAMS, K. rush over right tackle for no gain to the FS47, clock 08:29. Pretty sure Karlos Williams misses the hole here and that's what got Fisher pretty angry. This is not on the line.
3-10 at Fs47 10 gun WINSTON, J. post pass complete to GREENE, R. for 38 yards to the UMD15, 1ST DOWN FS (Davis), clock 08:11. Great blitz pickup, Winston awesome throw to Greene over one defender and underneath another. Greene runs this as a seam against Cover 3 and it stems to a skinny post against cover 2. That's what this was, cover 2. Great job by Greene to sell the seam route on his long catch before stemming to skinny post v. cover 2. Awesome trust and anticipation from Winston. He throws it well before Greene brekas.
1-10 at Umd15 10 gun FREEMAN, D. rush over left end for 4 yards to the UMD11 (Robinson), clock 07:19. Zone read, good cutback and nice block by Tre' Jackson.
2-6 at Umd11 21 FREEMAN, D. rush right for 6 yards to the UMD5, 1ST DOWN FS (Nixon), clock 06:42. Jameis checks to a run (hooray!). Stretch right, FSU has numbers, nice blocks Jackson, O'Leary, Hart, Abram. First and goal.
1-G at Umd05 22 FREEMAN, D. rush up middle for 5 yards to the UMD0, TOUCHDOWN, clock 06:15. Excellent double team by Jackson and Hart. They got into a nice rhythm on this drive. Barron washes DT, Abram blocks backer and all Freeman has to do is beat a safety in the hole.
AGUAYO, R. kick attempt good.
Florida State 14, Maryland 0
Drive: 9 plays, 80 yards, TOP 04:11 Excellent drive.
AGUAYO, R. kickoff 42 yards to the UMD23, downed. This was planned. Great pooch kid, should have recovered it.
MARYLAND drive start at 06:15.
1-10 at Umd23 3-3-5 Brown screen pass complete to B.Ross for loss of 2 yards to the UMD21 (JERNIGAN, T.), clock 05:54. Great leverage. Edwards and Jernigan diagnose screen immediately.
2-12 at Umd21 4-1-6 Brown deep pass incomplete to King (DARBY, R.), clock 05:33. This is the knockout play. Good pressure by Jones to stay home after play action, disciplined. He misses QB a bit, but forces bad throw and McDaniel crushes Brown.
Rowe at QB for Maryland.
3-12 at Umd21 3-2-6 Rowe deep out pass complete to Long for 19 yards to the UMD40, 1ST DOWN UMD, out-of-bounds, clock 05:28. Good throw and catch on smash, but Williams cannot jump the flat on third and 13. Poor situational awareness.
1-10 at Umd40 2-4-5 Rowe screen pass complete to B.Ross for 9 yards to the UMD49 (JERNIGAN, T.), clock 05:02. Screen to the other side, Jones and Goldman don't diagnose like Edwards and Jernigan did.
2-1 at Umd49 3-3-5 Rowe WS pass complete to Diggs for 12 yards to the FS39, out-of-bounds (SMITH, TEL.), PENALTY UMD holding (King) 10 yards to the UMD39, NO PLAY, clock 04:45. Bubble screen. Joyner a bit out of control, but good golly is Brooks held. Obvious call.
2-11 at Umd39 3-3-5 Rowe rush right for 5 yards to the UMD44 (SMITH, TERR.), clock 04:20. Option to boundary, Edwards is held.
3-6 at Umd44 3-2-6 Rowe middle pass incomplete to King (Williams, P.J.), clock 03:57. FSU brings blitz, forces pressure, Williams drops an easy pick-six.
4-6 at Umd44 Renfro punt 35 yards to the FS21, SHAW, K. return 1 yards to the FS22 (Davis).
Drive: 6 plays, 21 yards, TOP 02:27
FLORIDA STATE drive start at 03:48.
1-10 at Fs22 21 gun WILDER, J. rush up middle for 4 yards to the FS26 (Monroe;Jefferson), PENALTY FS holding (O'LEARY, N.) 10 yards to the FS12, NO PLAY, clock 03:39. Delay counter, O'Leary throws a dude down. Makes it an easy call for the refs.
1-20 at Fs12 21 WILDER, J. rush TR for 9 yards to the FS21 (Goree), clock 03:15. Option to the field right, good pitch, nice block by Abram.
2-11 at Fs21 11 gun WINSTON, J. sideline pass complete to O'LEARY, N. for 25 yards to the FS46, 1ST DOWN FS, out-of-bounds (Goree), clock 02:49. Jackson gets beat, Winston evades, defense loses O'Leary on option route (I think).
1-10 at Fs46 21 WINSTON, J. middle pass incomplete (Robinson), clock 02:24. Play action, want to take a big shot down field, really poor blitz pickup by Abram. No knee bend, no extension. Runs into Winston.
2-10 at Fs46 11 gun WINSTON, J. crossing pass complete to BENJAMIN, K. for 18 yards to the UMD36, 1ST DOWN FS (Nixon), clock 02:17. Quick triple read. Read it curl, flat, then the under route, which is Benjamin. Easy throw and catch against man coverage and a bust at that.
1-10 at Umd36 11 WILDER, J. rush left for no gain to the UMD36 (Likely), clock 01:48. This is partially bad luck with Monroe slanting hard right at snap, but, Barron needs to make a call for help here and does not, so he gets beat badly. More of a mental than a physical error. Nobody makes that block the way it went down, backup or not.
2-10 at Umd36 11 gun WINSTON, J. MR pass complete to FREEMAN, D. for 18 yards to the UMD18, 1ST DOWN FS (Davis), clock 01:36. Maryland blitzes, free release for hot Devonta, hits hot, moves the chains with awesome juke move.
1-10 at Umd18 21 gun FREEMAN, D. rush right for no gain to the UMD18 (Whitfield), clock 00:57. Poor, poor kickout block by Abram, and Freeman needs to hit this a bit faster maybe. Matias needs to clear Hart cleaner on pull.
2-10 at Umd18 10 gun WINSTON, J. sideline pass complete to SHAW, K. for 13 yards to the UMD5, 1ST DOWN FS, out-of-bounds (Davis), clock 00:33. Maryland brings pressure again, Shaw matched up on a safety, in and out, ball out quickly, good play, protection could be better.
1-G at Umd05 22 WINSTON, J. crossing pass complete to BENJAMIN, K. for 5 yards to the UMD0, TOUCHDOWN, clock 00:28. Play action, ball thrown literally at the height of the cross bad, where 6'6 Kelvin Benjamin goes up and gets it. This is difficult to stop.
AGUAYO, R. kick attempt good.
Florida State 21, Maryland 0
Drive: 9 plays, 78 yards, TOP 03:23
AGUAYO, R. kickoff 42 yards to the UMD23, fair catch by Riddle, PENALTY FS offside 5 yards to the UMD28, 1st and 10, UMD ball on UMD28.
