Florida State football film review: Maryland 1st quarter

New, comments

Let's break it down. Questions? Please ask. And make sure to share this with your friends.

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 Spot Formation Result Analysis
AGUAYO, R. kickoff 65 yards to the UMD0, touchback. Out of the end zone. Good kick.
1-10 at Umd25 3-3-5 Brown screen pass complete to B.Ross for 10 yards to the UMD35, 1ST DOWN UMD, out-of-bounds (SMITH, TERR.), clock 14:53. Motion to empty, clearout for back, Terrance Smith a bit late getting over in coverage.
1-10 at Umd35 3-3-5 Diggs rush OR for 5 yards to the UMD40 (RAMSEY, J.;WILLIAMS, P.J.), clock 14:30. Diggs orbit motion, speed option to boundary. Pretty well defended. He's fast.
2-5 at Umd40 2-4-5 Brown rush RO for no gain to the UMD40 (EDWARDS, M.), clock 13:48. Zone read with a puller, Mario Edwards Jr. good tackling position and makes QB make tough choice.
3-5 at Umd40 4-1-6 Brown crossing pass complete to L.Jacobs for 3 yards to the UMD43 (RAMSEY, J.;ANDREWS, N.), clock 13:24. FSU brings five, does not get home, misread by QB, throws to man in tight coverage.
4-2 at Umd43 Renfro punt 44 yards to the FS13, SHAW, K. return 10 yards to the FS23 (Davis).
Drive: 4 plays, 18 yards, TOP 02:06
FLORIDA STATE drive start at 12:54.
1-10 at Fs23 20 gun WINSTON, J. WS pass complete to SHAW, K. for 18 yards to the FS41, 1ST DOWN FS (Davis), clock 12:45. Package play, quick bubble uncovered to Shaw. PA holds backer. Excellent block by Benjamin.
1-10 at Fs41 21 WINSTON, J. MR pass complete to BENJAMIN, K. for 7 yards to the FS48 (Likely), clock 12:22. Motion to bunch from twins with FB as HB, curl/flat, think he should throw flat to Abram but gets away with it via excellent throw to Benjamin (curl).
2-3 at Fs48 11 gun WINSTON, J. sideline pass complete to FREEMAN, D. for 4 yards to the UMD48, 1ST DOWN FS (Robinson), clock 11:52. Back on an arrow route against linebacker. Very quick read by Winston and good throw and catch.
1-10 at Umd48 22 FREEMAN, D. rush TL for 21 yards to the UMD27, 1ST DOWN FS, out-of-bounds (Robinson), clock 11:27. Now this is new, Winston reverse out, pitch to Freeman, looks like an LSU toss play. Good blocks Matias, Erving, Abram and good hustle by Bobby Hart.
1-10 at Umd27 22 FREEMAN, D. rush right for 1 yard to the UMD26 (Jefferson;Goree), clock 10:50. Hart misses a block passing up one backer for another, so the counter is bust.
2-9 at Umd26 10 Pistol WINSTON, J. rush QX for no gain to the UMD26 (Kilgo;Bowers), clock 10:14. Think this was supposed to be a screen.
3-9 at Umd26 11 gun WINSTON, J. middle pass complete to O'LEARY, N. for 10 yards to the UMD16, 1ST DOWN FS (Robinson), clock 09:43. Option route to O'Leary, great chemistry between QB & TE, and great blitz pickup by Freeman. He's very good there.
1-10 at Umd16 11 gun WINSTON, J. rush right for 2 yards to the UMD14 (Farrand), clock 09:00. Lack of knee bend from Bobby Hart messes up QB sweep. This was a check by Winston. He does this when back and tight end are on the same side and he has numbers. Matias' block is also not great.
2-8 at Umd14 11 gun WINSTON, J. ML pass complete to FREEMAN, D. for 13 yards to the UMD1, 1ST DOWN FS (Nixon), clock 08:33. Another arrow route to Freeman. Again, he's open and Winston hits him in stride. Quick game. Good to see him get it to his back.
1-G at Umd01 GL WILLIAMS, K. rush up middle for 1 yard to the UMD0, TOUCHDOWN, clock 08:14. Smash up middle. Goal line running. I think this is the play that Stork gets concussed. Does Williams hit the right hole here?
AGUAYO, R. kick attempt good.
Florida State 7, Maryland 0
Drive: 10 plays, 77 yards, TOP 04:47 A nice opening drive. A few mistakes, but FSU makes up for them with some excellent plays as well.
AGUAYO, R. kickoff 63 yards to the UMD2, Likely return 32 yards to the UMD34 (SMITH, TEL.). Missed tackle Christian Jones.
MARYLAND drive start at 08:07.
1-10 at Umd34 3-3-5 Brown crossing pass incomplete to Diggs (SMITH, TEL.), clock 08:02. Straight drop, regular rush, Telvin Smith makes this a tough pass to hit and Diggs drops it deep down the middle.
2-10 at Umd34 2-4-5 Brown ML pass complete to King for 13 yards to the UMD47, 1ST DOWN UMD (RAMSEY, J.), clock 07:55. Pick play, and FSU is very confused. Short throw turns into a first. Man coverage.
1-10 at Umd47 3-3-5 Brown rush up middle for 2 yards to the UMD49 (SMITH, TERR.), clock 07:25. Joyner telegraphs blitz look way early, MD misses obvious bubble screen check.
2-8 at Umd49 2-4-5 Brown flag pass incomplete to Long, clock 07:01. Option pass, decent coverage from Darby. Think he had another man open deep.
3-8 at Umd49 4-1-6 Brown sacked for loss of 6 yards to the UMD43 (MCDANIEL, J.), PENALTY FS offside defense (EDWARDS, M.) 5 yards to the FS46, NO PLAY, clock 06:52.
3-3 at Fs46 3-2-5 Brown sideline pass incomplete to Diggs (MCDANIEL, J.), clock 06:36. McDaniel reads three step drop, gets hands up and bats it down.

1-10 at Fs14 21 FREEMAN, D. rush over left end for 8 yards to the FS22 (Nixon;Jefferson), clock 06:10. Stretch, excellent block by Erving.
2-2 at Fs22 21 FREEMAN, D. rush up middle for 2 yards to the FS24, 1ST DOWN FS (Jefferson;Davis), clock 05:35. Hey, good short yardage running. Inside zone. Nice block by Stork and Matias.
1-10 at Fs24 21 WINSTON, J. rush OR for 4 yards to the FS28 (Farrand), clock 05:05. Option.
2-6 at Fs28 00 gun WINSTON, J. slant pass incomplete to SHAW, K., clock 04:43. Maryland seems to auto blitz empty backfield, quick game, throw is behind Shaw.
3-6 at Fs28 10 gun WINSTON, J. crossing pass complete to GREENE, R. for 7 yards to the FS35, 1ST DOWN FS (Hendy), clock 04:27. Well handled blitz/stunt, gives Winston time to find his third receiver and make a strong throw across the field.
1-10 at Fs35 11 WINSTON, J. flag pass incomplete to GREENE, R., clock 04:03. Play action, deep cross to Greene, just misses him. Very good coverage.
2-10 at Fs35 11 gun WINSTON, J. deep pass incomplete to GREENE, R., clock 03:57. Almost an awesome play. First and second are covered so the deep to Greene is the throw. Just out of bounds.
3-10 at Fs35 11 gun WINSTON, J. rush QX for 6 yards to the FS41 (Cudjoe-Virgil), clock 03:41. Winston a little antsy in the pocket here, but a good scramble.

Drive: 8 plays, 27 yards, TOP 03:13 Fine with this drive. FSU took some shots and just missed them. Not bad plays at all.
MARYLAND drive start at 03:13.
1-10 at Umd11 3-3-5 Brown rush quarterback draw for 1 yard to the UMD12 (MCDANIEL, J.;LAWRENCESTAMPLE), clock 02:59. Excellent push by McDaniel and Lawrence-Stample give this QB draw nowhere to go.
2-9 at Umd12 3-3-5 B.Ross rush right for loss of 2 yards to the UMD10 (LAWRENCESTAMPLE), clock 02:32. Great pursuie by 300-lbers McDaniel and NLS. Nice block shedding by P.J. Williams.
3-11 at Umd10 3-2-6 Brown post pass incomplete to Long, clock 02:00. FSU drops 8, rushes three, Long drops the pass but this is a tough catch. Throwing lanes made it a tough throw to fit in.

Drive: 3 plays, minus 1 yards, TOP 01:20 Excellent defensive series. Good discipline.

4-29 at Fs28 BEATTY, C. punt 45 yards to the UMD27, out-of-bounds. This is not a good punt. Takes a while to get it off and it rolls about 15 yards. Original punt was about 35.
