Florida State football film review: Boston College 1st quarter

Every week we break down the result of the previous game. Who really played well for the Seminoles against Boston College? Which players played poorly? Where did the coaches do well, and when did they screw up?

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.

For other quarters, visit the film review section (All quarters up by tonight).

D-D At Form Play Analysis
1-10 at Bc35 BC ball on BC35.
Howell,A kickoff 65 yards to the FS0, touchback.
1-10 at Fs25 Winston, J. at QB for Florida State.
1-10 at Fs25 21 Bunch Williams, K. rush right for 6 yards to the FS31 (Brown,T), clock 14:45. FSU rushes to the line to run this toss sweep. They have a WR outside of the bunch, trying to get a numbers advantage in the alley. One of the bunch defenders misses a cut block, forcing the run wider than it'd designed and limiting the gain.
2-4 at Fs31 11 Gun Winston, J. sideline pass incomplete to Greene, R., clock 14:28. BC is in Cover 2 and Winston wants to hit the fade in between the flat defender and safety. Greene throttles down and Winston overthrows him.
3-4 at Fs31 11 Gun Tight Winston, J. MR pass complete to O'Leary, N. for 7 yards to the FS38, 1ST DOWN FS (Keyes,J), clock 14:16. Curl flat to the boundary. O'Leary does a good job of creating collision and breaking off of it, creating space for the throw.
1-10 at Fs38 11 Gun Tight Winston, J. slant pass complete to Williams, K. for 12 yards to the 50 yardline, 1ST DOWN FS (Daniels,S;Strizak,M), clock 13:44. BC's underneath coverage is dropping deep and FSU responds by slipping Karlos Williams out on an angle route.
1-10 at Fs50 21 Bunch Winston, J. flag pass incomplete to O'Leary, N., clock 13:24. BC defense brings 5 and the blitz is picked up nicely, giving Jameis an excellent pocket to step into. O'Leary has a step on the post route and Winston misses high.
2-10 at Fs50 11 Pistol Trey Cook, D. rush over right tackle for 14 yards to the BC36, 1ST DOWN FS (Asprilla,M), clock 13:12. Inside zone. Cam Erving puts the DT on skates and shoves him into the path of the MLB, effectively blocking two defenders. Very nice backside cut off by Roderick Johnson on the safety. Great blocking.
1-10 at Bc36 11 Pistol Trey Cook, D. rush left for 8 yards to the BC28 (Simmons,J), clock 12:51. Pin and pull zone to the field. Really nice down blocks by O'Leary and Johnson. OL is really feeling it.
2-2 at Bc28 21 Twins Williams, K. rush for no gain to the BC28 (Lifka,N). Inside zone and there's a small crease but Williams gets stood up and thrown back in the hole. Looks like a very stingy spot.
3-2 at Bc28 22 Williams, K. rush for 15 yards to the BC13, 1ST DOWN FS (Brown,T). Outside zone. Very well blocked. If O'Leary can hold his block on the LB instead of bouncing off, it may go for more.
1-10 at Bc13 22 Williams, K. rush for 4 yards to the BC9 (Kavalec,K). Inside zone. Nick O'Leary knocks the DE back then gets in the way of the will backer, creating a nice cutback lane for Williams.
2-6 at Bc09 21 Bunch Winston, J. screen pass complete to Greene, R. for 2 yards to the BC7 (Asprilla,M), clock 10:33. Play action sweep from bunch, with 80 leaking out to the flat backside. Really impressive play by the BC linebacker to chase it down. Winston needs to get this out sooner.
3-4 at Bc07 10 Gun Trips Winston, J. screen pass complete to Williams, K. for 5 yards to the BC2, 1ST DOWN FS (Asprilla,M), clock 10:04. Fake jet sweep, rollout right. Winston hits Williams in the flat for a first down.
1-G at Bc02 PENALTY FS false start (Matias, J.) 5 yards to the BC7, clock 09:42. Senior. At home.
1-G at Bc07 21 Pony Cook, D. rush over right tackle for 4 yards to the BC3 (Kavalec,K), clock 09:07. Outside zone. Good decision to take the cutback lane and guaranteed yards near the goal line.
2-G at Bc03 21 Pony Twins Williams, K. rush over right tackle for 3 yards to the BC0, TOUCHDOWN, clock 08:36. Inside zone. This is a tendency breaker as FSU generally runs OZ out of the Pony alignment. BC is aligned on the edges and there isn't a second level to the defense.
Aguayo, R. kick attempt good.
Florida State 7, Boston College 0 Really good drive.
Drive: 14 plays, 75 yards, TOP 06:30
Aguayo, R. kickoff 60 yards to the BC5, Willis,M return 22 yards to the BC27 (Northrup, R.).
1-10 at Bc27 BOSTON COLLEGE drive start at 08:30.
1-10 at Bc27 Murphy,T at QB for Boston College.
1-10 at Bc27 4-2-5 Hilliman,J rush up middle for 5 yards to the BC32 (Hunter, T.;Andrews, N.), clock 08:04. Inside zone. Derrick Mitchell gets great penetration, but gets out of his gap. What the BC OL does to Reggie Northrup does not meet any rational definition of a legal block.
2-5 at Bc32 4-2-5 Hilliman,J rush over right guard for 7 yards to the BC39, 1ST DOWN BC (Northrup, R.), clock 07:38. Inside zone again. Several defenders get sealed playside. Nice job of taking on the block in the hole and keeping playside arm free by Reggie Northrup.
1-10 at Bc39 4-2-5 Murphy,T slant pass complete to Wolford,B for 3 yards to the BC42 (Smith, Terr.), clock 06:59. Play action power scheme. Great job by Terrance Smith of staying disciplined and tracking down the TE in the flat.
2-7 at Bc42 3-4 Willis,M rush over left end for 6 yards to the BC48 (Darby, R.), clock 06:18. Power blocking. Desmond Hollin gets washed out by the downblock, negating a pretty good squeeze by Demarcus Walker.
3-1 at Bc48 4-4 Murphy,T rush quarterback sneak for 1 yard to the BC49, 1ST DOWN BC (Mitchell, D.;Edwards, M.), clock 05:52. QB Sneak. Stoned them on the initial surge, but Murphy picks it up with the second effort.
1-10 at Bc49 3-4 Hilliman,J rush left for 7 yards to the FS44 (Andrews, N.), clock 05:15. Counter Trey. Linebackers get frozen and PJ Williams takes on the pulling blockers, not noticing that the back is cutting it outside.
2-3 at Fs44 3-4 Willis,M rush left for 4 yards to the FS40, 1ST DOWN BC (Andrews, N.;Williams, P.J.), clock 04:47. Buck sweep. BC is overloading the right side then running counters left and getting a numbers advantage.
1-10 at Fs40 4-2-5 Murphy,T sideline pass complete to Darmstatter,J for 6 yards to the FS34, clock 04:13. Play action. Counter trey blocking, TE leaking to the flat is wide open as the linebackers get caught up in the wash of bodies.
2-4 at Fs34 4-2-5 Murphy,T rush for loss of 2 yards to the FS36, fumble by Murphy,T, clock 03:21. Murphy and the fullback collide on what appears to be a play action roll out. Ball pops out and Murphy falls on it.
3-6 at Fs36 4-2-5 Murphy,T SH pass complete to Alston,S for 6 yards to the FS30, 1ST DOWN BC (Ramsey, J.), clock 02:50. Old Utah triple option, with the inside option being a shovel pass to the trailing tight end. Don't see that much anymore.
1-10 at Fs30 4-2-5 Outlow,M rush right for no gain to the FS30 (Williams, P.J.), clock 02:15. Counter trey. Mario Edwards Jr shrugs off the block of the fullback and forces the back deeper and wider than intended, allowing the defense to rally and make the tackle for no gain. Finally got them behind schedule.
2-10 at Fs30 4-2-5 Murphy,T rush quarterback draw for 6 yards to the FS24 (Andrews, N.), clock 01:33. Counter trey blocking from gun, with the jet sweep serving as the fake. Really neat play. Forcing FSU to shift based on the jet motion, then hitting them with the counter and getting a numbers advantage.
3-4 at Fs24 4-2-5 Murphy,T rush quarterback draw for 1 yard to the FS23 (Andrews, N.;Brutus, L.), clock 00:48. QB draw and FSU has the right defense called, a blitz up the middle. Great job by Nate Andrews of scraping over the top and tracking Murphy down around the edge.
4-3 at Fs23 Knoll,M field goal attempt from 40 GOOD, clock 00:14.
Florida State 7, Boston College 3
Drive: 14 plays, 50 yards, TOP 08:16
Howell,A kickoff 65 yards to the FS0, touchback.
1-10 at Fs25 FLORIDA STATE drive start at 00:14.
1-10 at Fs25 11 Pistol Winston, J. sideline pass incomplete to O'Leary, N., clock 00:10, QB hurry by Brown,T. Play action OZ left, O'Leary fakes the block then goes to the flat. He's wide open, but BC blitzed the backside corner and the play didn't allow for anyone to pick him up. With the defender in his facce, Winston air mails the pass.
2-10 at Fs25 11 Gun Trey Winston, J. deep out pass complete to Greene, R. for 25 yards to the 50 yardline, 1ST DOWN FS, out-of-bounds (Williams,D). BC blitzes from the field again, this time FSU has the right play on, with Rashad Greene isolated to the side of the blitz. FSU is starting to protect well enough to go for the big play vs. blitz again.
Drive: 2 plays, 25 yards, TOP 04:35
