Florida State football film review: Clemson 4th quarter

Every week we break down the result of the previous game. Who really played well for the Seminoles against Clemson? Did the result have more to do with FSU playing well or the opponent playing poorly, or luck? Read to find out.

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.

Garbage time started after FSU went up 41-7, so this entire quarter is in garbage time.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask.

And this takes forever for our staff to put together, so please do share it on facebook and tweet it liberally.

Down/Distance Yard Formation Result Analysis (Jimbo notes included where appropriate
1-10 at Cu12 21 Gun FREEMAN, D. rush for 5 yards to the CU7 (BARNES), PENALTY FS holding 10 yards to the CU22, NO PLAY. Unfortunately Brian Stork allows penetration from Jarrett and reaches out to grab him.
1-20 at Cu22 21 Gun WILLIAMS, K. rush for 7 yards to the CU15 (R. SMITH;ST. ANTHONY). FSU featuring the pony set here with Los and Freeman. The entire OL does a phenomenal job blocking this OZ play. 54 seals the DT, 75 washes out Beasley, Matias manhandles Jarret and Hart gets to the second level to chip Shuey. Most impressive is Karlos' ability to plant his foot and accelerate. Its quite awesome to watch. He sees the hole and is shot out of a cannon. Great run to get back the majority of the penalty yards.
2-13 at Cu15 11 Gun WINSTON, J. pass complete to FREEMAN, D. for 11 yards to the CU4 (M. JENKINS). FSU goes to the bunch formation here with Abrams, NOL and KB. CU is playing a soft zone. Jameis recognizes it and hits Devonta in the flats immediately. This is what we were hoping to see from Jameis as he progresses throught the season, patience. Freeman shakes the CB out of his socks and nearly gets the 1st down.
3-2 at Cu04 22 FREEMAN, D. rush for 2 yards to the CU2, 1ST DOWN FS (LAWSON;R. SMITH). This looks like power. Newberry in to block as the second TE. Clemson is expecting the run and brings everyone. OL does just enough to allow Freeman to get the first down. Really nice hard run from Devonta. FSU could have easily scored with a simple play action. I'm thinking Jameis would have checked to a pass if FSU wasn't wiping the floor with them.
1-G at Cu02 Timeout Florida State, clock 12:23.
1-G at Cu02 32 FREEMAN, D. rush for 2 yards to the CU0, TOUCHDOWN, clock 12:17. Jacobbi in at FB. FSU runs power again and CU is bringing the house. Jacobbi destroys Shuey (that poor kid had a rough night). Freeman with a really hard run, spins off of a tackler and reaches for the end zone. #8 is tough to tackle, man.
AGUAYO, R. kick attempt good.
Florida State 48, Clemson 7
Drive: 7 plays, 57 yards, TOP 04:05
AGUAYO, R. kickoff 65 yards to the CU0, touchback.
1-10 at Cu25 3-3-5 HOWARD rush for 4 yards to the CU29 (SMITH, TEL.). Mcdaniel gets fooled a bit her on the ZR which allows the OG to seal him. Telvin comes i nto clean it up with authority. The guys are still playing extremely hard.
2-6 at Cu29 4-2-5 BOYD pass complete to HUMPHRIES for 12 yards to the CU41, 1ST DOWN CU (BROOKS, T.). Hicks gets fooled on the PA badly which gets him pinned inside and allows Boyd to get outside the pocket. The coverage by Brooks is excellent on Humphries but Boyd makes a big time throw. Nothing was easy for Boyd with the way the secondary played.
1-10 at Cu41 4-2-5 BOYD pass complete to S. WATKINS for 6 yards to the CU47 (WAISOME, N.). Quick game to Sammy. Joyner beats the blocker badly but Sammy is fast. Waisome does a nice job of avoiding the block and forcing Sammy out of bounds.
2-4 at Cu47 4-2-5 HOWARD rush for 1 yard to the CU48 (JOYNER, L.), PENALTY FS personal foul 14 yards to the FS38, 1ST DOWN CU. NLS gets excellent penetration to force the RB outside. Joyner is just unfair in the slot at nickel . He strings this out all the way to the sideline and comes up and mandhandles a dude that outweighs him but 20lbs. After the play Joyner shoves him out of bounds. The penalty was probably warranted but it wasn't egregious.
1-10 at Fs38 1st and 10.
1-10 at Fs38 3-2-6 HOWARD rush for 19 yards to the FS19, 1ST DOWN CU (SMITH, TEL.). FSU gets caught in a blitz here and also isnt ready for the snap. DMac isnt even lined up, neither is Casher. Joyner and Brooks are both coming. Telvin has flats responsibility and that opens up the middle of the field. Weird call, I'm thinking something was screwed up here.
1-10 at Fs19 3-2-6 HOWARD rush for 1 yard to the FS18 (MCDANIEL, J.). Note: Casher is standing up here as the OLB. It appears he has cutback and QB resp. DMac and 55 absolutley stone CU's OL. This is absolutely blown up. FSU has no intentions of allowing a TD here.
2-9 at Fs18 3-2-6 BOYD pass incomplete to S. WATKINS. FSU brings Brooks and Joyner on a blitz. Pruitt is sending a big FU to the Clemson sideline. Boyd is forced to throw quickly to the flats. Sammy drops it but Telvin was coming with the quickness.
3-9 at Fs18 3-2-6 BOYD rush for 1 yard to the FS17 (JONES, C.). Jones is blitzing the A gap here and PJ is blitzing from the corner spot, both force a ton of pressure that forces tahj to tuck it. Joes continues pursuit and takes Boyd down. Boyd has been abused all game.
4-8 at Fs17 3-2-6 BOYD pass complete to LEGGETT for 10 yards to the FS7, 1ST DOWN CU (JOYNER, L.). MEjr is lined up as a DT here with Eligwe on his hip at the OLB. MEJr makes the OG look like a school girl and forces Boyd from the pocket. Jones lined up at DE also beats the RT and puts pressure on Boyd but loses contain. Awesome defense but Boyd makes a big time throw with Joyner in tight coverage.
1-G at Fs07 3-2-6 BROOKS rush for 4 yards to the FS3 (SMITH, TEL.). Interesting alignment from the DL. DMac and Jones are lined up wide as are Eligwe and MEJr. Telvin is lined up directly behind MEJr's back right hip. This leaves what looks to be a massive hole in the A and B gaps. Right before the snap, Eligwe shuffles to the A gap and Telvin replaces him at OLB. Looks like FSU was trying to bait Clemson into running inside. Eligwe gets blown up by the FB or this would have been shut down for little gain. Cool wrinkle.
2-G at Fs03 5-3-3 BOYD pass incomplete to M. WILLIAMS. Looks like Mike Williams is supposed to run a fade but instead he run blocks. Freshmen,
3-G at Fs03 4-1-6 BOYD rush for 2 yards to the FS1 (JOYNER, L.). 4 down lineman. Andrews and Joyner are lined up on the outside to run blitz on each side of the formation. Pruitt is so damn multiple, this defense is so cool. Jones does a nice job of fighting off the block to tackle Boyd on the QB dive.
4-G at Fs01 5-3-3 HOWARD rush for no gain to the FS1 (ELIGWE, U.;SMITH, TEL.). 55 stalemates the center, Jones and Telvin fill and FSU rips Clemson's guts out on the goal line stand. Total domination. Just awesome.
Drive: 13 plays, 74 yards, TOP 03:37
1-10 at Fs01 FLORIDA STATE drive start at 08:40.
1-10 at Fs01 22 FREEMAN, D. rush for no gain to the FS1 (ROBINSON). Clemson brings everyone. More guys than the OL can block. Clearly trying to get a safety. Jimbo has a solution for this, see next play.
2-10 at Fs01 22 WINSTON, J. pass complete to O'LEARY, N. for 94 yards to the CU5, 1ST DOWN FS (JOHNSON). Clemson brings the house once again, I'm not sure why they think they can get away with this a second time. Play action and clemson's defense chases like their fanbase does when huntin hogs in the backwoods. NOL is wide open on a simple option rote. He nearly outruns their DB's but is tripped up at the 6 yard line. Wish I was a fly on the wall in the FSU film room. I'm sure he caught a lot of shit.
1-G at Cu05 22 FREEMAN, D. rush for loss of 2 yards to the CU7 (SHUEY). Clemson still brings everyone. No where for 8 to run. Want proof that Jimbo wasnt running up the score? He could have run play action for an easy TD at any point here.
2-G at Cu07 22 FREEMAN, D. rush for 5 yards to the CU2 (V. BEASLEY;SHUEY). Erving, Jackson and NOL whip their men. NOL beasts Beasley. Nice gain with Clemson doing everything it can to stop the run.
3-G at Cu02 22 FREEMAN, D. rush for no gain to the CU2 (J. WATSON). No room to run. Clemson brings 10 guys to stop FSU from scoring. Awesome drive.
4-G at Cu02 Timeout Florida State, clock 04:45.
4-G at Cu02 AGUAYO, R. field goal attempt from 20 GOOD, clock 04:41. This guy is pretty good, huh?
Florida State 51, Clemson 7
Drive: 6 plays, 97 yards, TOP 04:04
AGUAYO, R. kickoff 44 yards to the CU21, LEGGETT return 8 yards to the CU29 (SMITH, K.).
1-10 at Cu29 4-2-5 BROOKS rush for 5 yards to the CU34 (NORTHRUP, R.). 2's and 3's are in. Hicks gets sucked up inside. Reggie cleans it up with a big time hit.
2-5 at Cu34 4-2-5 BROOKS rush for 4 yards to the CU38 (LEVENBERRY, E.). Hollin needs to take on the block, instead he tries to spin out of it. Levenberry comes in to clean it up.
3-1 at Cu38 4-2-5 BROOKS rush for no gain to the CU38 (LEVENBERRY, E.). Levenberry is our future Mike. The dude has awesome MLB instincts, diagnoses and fills with the quickness. 99 does a nice job of stoning a double team.
4-1 at Cu38 4-2-5 STOUDT rush for 5 yards to the CU43, 1ST DOWN CU (NORTHRUP, R.). NLS gets held. Tough to stop the QB dive in short yardage.
1-10 at Cu43 4-2-5 BROOKS rush for 2 yards to the CU45 (HICKS, D.). Hicks keeps getting fooled by the dive fake. Northrup is a tackling machine.
2-8 at Cu45 4-2-5 STOUDT pass complete to BROOKS for 4 yards to the CU49 (WHITE, M.;LEVENBERRY, E.). quick game to the RB in the flats. Marquez White shows great physicality by coming up to make the tackle. The Levenberry crushes the guy for good measure. I like White, he's gonna be a good one.
3-4 at Cu49 4-2-5 STOUDT pass complete to BROOKS for 4 yards to the FS47, 1ST DOWN CU (HICKS, D.;LEVENBERRY, E.). Another swing pass to the RB. And White Misses the tackle, SMH. Levenberry is all over the place.
1-10 at Fs47 4-2-5 HOWARD rush for loss of 3 yards to the 50 yardline (HICKS, D.). Hicks just whips the left tackle off the ball and scrapes backside for the TFL. Nice play.
2-13 at Cu50 4-2-5 STOUDT pass complete to BRYANT for 18 yards to the FS32, 1ST DOWN CU (NORTHRUP, R.). FSU playing soft and allowing the underneath stuff. Demps takes a poor angle and allows Bryant to pick up big yards. These are the 3's.
1-10 at Fs32 4-2-5 HOWARD rush for 4 yards to the FS28 (SMITH, K.). Nice job by Keelin Smith to come up from his safety postion and make a nice tackle.
2-6 at Fs28 4-2-5 STOUDT pass incomplete to HOPPER. Quick game. Hicks jumps the snap and forces Stoudt to rush his throw.
3-6 at Fs28 4-2-5 STOUDT pass complete to BRYANT for 17 yards to the FS11, 1ST DOWN CU (WHITE, M.). Northrup can't stay with the athletic freak, Bryant.
1-10 at Fs11 4-2-5 PENALTY FS substitution infraction 5 yards to the FS6. Penalty
1-5 at Fs06 5-1-5 STOUDT pass incomplete to HOWARD (NORTHRUP, R.). Northrup on the bltiz shows great instncts to bat Stoudt's pass down.
2-5 at Fs06 4-2-5 STOUDT pass incomplete to BRYANT. Waisome is small but the dude can cover. Matched up with Bryant on the fade pass, perfect defense.
3-5 at Fs06 4-2-5 STOUDT pass complete to HOPPER for 4 yards to the FS2 (BRUTUS, L.). Quick hitch, Waisome really nice job of coming up and being physical. Man, Clemson really wants this garbage TD.
4-1 at Fs02 4-2-5 STOUDT rush for 2 yards to the FS0, 1ST DOWN CU, TOUCHDOWN, clock 00:13. Ugh.
