Florida State football film review: Boston College 2nd 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 Fs50 Start of 2nd quarter, clock 15:00.
1-10 at Fs50 21 Pender, M. rush left for no gain to the 50 yardline (Simmons,J), clock 14:39. FSU keeps trying to run to the line after TV timeouts and hit a toss sweep outside. Hasn't really worked yet.
2-10 at Fs50 11 Pistol Winston, J. screen pass complete to Pender, M. for 7 yards to the BC43 (Simmons,J;Gutapfel,T), clock 14:06. Called swing pass. Some violent blocking downfield by Nick O'Leary. Dude is on a mission.
3-3 at Bc43 11 Gun Tight Winston, J. sideline pass complete to Rudolph, T. for 4 yards to the BC39, 1ST DOWN FS (Brown,T), clock 13:38. Curl flat and the field side flat is wide open. Some poor footwork prevents Winston from getting his usual velocity on this throw.
1-10 at Bc39 PENALTY BC substitution infraction 5 yards to the BC34, clock 13:29.
1-5 at Bc34 11 Pistol Trey Williams, K. rush left for loss of 4 yards to the BC38 (Wujciak,C), clock 13:03. At first glance, this looks like Cam Erving getting blown up. It's a pin and pull zone play, with the center and playside guard pulling around the edge. Tre Jackson has to block the DT over the center to prevent him from following the puller into the backfield as he does here.
2-9 at Bc38 11 Gun Trey Winston, J. crossing pass complete to Rudolph, T. for 19 yards to the BC19, 1ST DOWN FS (Brown,T), clock 12:29. Really nice route by Travis Rudolph here. He sells the vertical stem, gets the DB back on on his heels and is wide open when he breaks inside. Nice blitz pickup again.
1-10 at Bc19 21 Pony Winston, J. post pass incomplete to Greene, R., clock 12:13. Strictly speaking, this is a misread by Winston. The defense runs with the vertical and the slant couldn't be more open behind it. With that being said, Winston makes a tremendous throw into an extremely tight window and Rashad needs to bring this in.
2-10 at Bc19 20 Twins Winston, J. rush for loss of 15 yards to the BC34 (Milano,M), fumble by Winston, J., clock 11:35. Snap was eye level and off to the left, but Jameis needs to bring it in. Lack of focus play, though conditions likely played a part.
3-25 at Bc34 01 Gun Winston, J. deep pass complete to Wilson, J. for 15 yards to the BC19 (Simmons,J), clock 11:00. Snap is even higher this time, but Jameis corrals it and shows good patience in letting the deep over route come open. Good job getting this back into easy FG range after the huge loss.
4-10 at Bc19 Aguayo, R. field goal attempt from 37 GOOD, clock 10:39.
Florida State 10, Boston College 3
Drive: 11 plays, 56 yards, TOP 04:35
Aguayo, R. kickoff 65 yards to the BC0, touchback.
1-10 at Bc25 BOSTON COLLEGE drive start at 10:39.
1-10 at Bc25 4-2-5 Hilliman,J rush over right tackle for 9 yards to the BC34 (Thomas, M.), clock 10:12. BC has 8 OL/TEs on the line and FSU is playing nickel defense. Never had a chance.
Rain begins to fall.
2-1 at Bc34 5-2 Hilliman,J rush over left tackle for loss of 1 yard to the BC33 (Thomas, M.), clock 09:39. FSU makes the substitution to match personnel. Inside zone. Eddie Goldman opens the door by driving the guard into the backfield and Matthew Thomas shoots through it to make the tackle in the backfield. Two great individual efforts.
3-2 at Bc33 4-2-5 Murphy,T screen pass incomplete to Bordner,J (Casher, C.), clock 09:20. FSU successfully hides the blitz until after the freeze play, not giving the offense a chance to adjust. Chris Casher gets his arms up and breaks up the pass.
4-2 at Bc33 Howell,A punt 36 yards to the FS31, downed.
Drive: 3 plays, 8 yards, TOP 01:28
1-10 at Fs31 FLORIDA STATE drive start at 09:11.
1-10 at Fs31 11 Gun Winston, J. post pass complete to Rudolph, T. for 25 yards to the BC44, 1ST DOWN FS (Williams,D), clock 09:00. Beautiful post vs. Cover 2. Releases it right on the break and leads Rudolph right to the hole in the zone.
1-10 at Bc44 11 Pistol Cook, D. rush over left guard for 1 yard to the BC43 (Gutapfel,T;Duggan,S), clock 08:31. Inside zone. Really aggressive downhill fills by the BC linebackers. Bobby Hart needs to get a better block if he's gonna hold like this.
2-9 at Bc43 11 Gun Trey Winston, J. slant pass intercepted by Brown,T at the BC29, Brown,T return 4 yards to the BC33 (Greene, R.). In no time, place or edition of the rules of American football is what the BC defender does to Rashad Greene legal. To not call this when the play results in a turnover is inexcusable.
Drive: 3 plays, 26 yards, TOP 00:55
1-10 at Bc33 BOSTON COLLEGE drive start at 08:16.
1-10 at Bc33 4-2-5 Willis,M rush right for 6 yards to the BC39 (Northrup, R.;Smith, Terr.), clock 07:59. Counter Trey to the boundary. PJ Williams continues to get too far into the backfield when he is the force defender.
2-4 at Bc39 4-2-5 Outlow,M rush over right guard for 6 yards to the BC45, 1ST DOWN BC (Andrews, N.), clock 07:26. Inside zone. Darby is right there but misses the tackle.
1-10 at Bc45 4-4 Outlow,M rush over left tackle for 3 yards to the BC48 (Darby, R.), clock 06:32. Wham blocking. Reggie Northrup does a good job slicing through traffic, but gets juked in the hole.
2-7 at Bc48 4-2-5 Outlow,M rush over left tackle for 3 yards to the FS49, clock 06:00. Power blocking. FSU is outflanked by alignment. Somebody needs to adjust pre-snap.
3-4 at Fs49 4-2-5 Murphy,T deep pass complete to Phillips,S for 49 yards to the FS0, 1ST DOWN BC, TOUCHDOWN, clock 05:29. All slants play. FSU is blitzing with man free coverage behind. Tyler Murphy eludes the blitz and Jalen Ramsey slips in coverage. Hunter has deep middle coverage and has his eyes in the backfield and never sees the backside receiver running free.
Knoll,M kick attempt good.
Boston College 10, Florida State 10
Drive: 5 plays, 67 yards, TOP 02:47
Howell,A kickoff 65 yards to the FS0, touchback.
1-10 at Fs25 FLORIDA STATE drive start at 05:29.
1-10 at Fs25 11 Gun Trey Winston, J. sideline pass complete to Greene, R. for 11 yards to the FS36, 1ST DOWN FS (Simmons,J), clock 05:12. Slant corner to 80 and what he does to the DB on this play isn't even fair.
1-10 at Fs36 11 Gun Trey Winston, J. slant pass complete to Wilson, J. for 9 yards to the FS45 (Keyes,J), clock 04:35. Three verts. With the coverage dropping deep, Winston hits Bobo on the underneath crosser.
2-1 at Fs45 11 Gun Trey Winston, J. sideline pass incomplete to Rudolph, T., dropped pass, clock 04:29. Packaged play, outside zone with a bubble. Winston hits Rudolph right in the hands and he drops it. Gotta have that.
3-1 at Fs45 22 Williams, K. rush left for 2 yards to the FS47, 1ST DOWN FS (Strizak,M;Simmons,J), clock 04:00. Inside zone. Great job of following the FB. Stevenson has really stepped up his physicality on these zone extra plays.
1-10 at Fs47 11 Gun Winston, J. post pass complete to Greene, R. for 22 yards to the BC31, 1ST DOWN FS (Simmons,J), clock 03:51. Play action post. Winston is not going to shy away from the middle of the field even after the pick. Tremendous blitz pickup as BC rushes 6.
Injured player for FSU is #80-Greene. Walks to locker room.
1-10 at Bc31 11 Gun Trey Cook, D. rush over left end for 1 yard to the BC30 (Mihalik,B), clock 03:24. 7 in the box for BC probably should have resulted in a check from Jameis here.
2-9 at Bc30 11 Gun Trey Winston, J. flag pass complete to O'Leary, N. for 30 yards to the BC0, 1ST DOWN FS, TOUCHDOWN, clock 03:02. FSU running the all-post-everything offense right now and BC can't stop it.
Aguayo, R. kick attempt good.
Florida State 17, Boston College 10 FSU is happy to play slow and limit snaps, then go hurry up when they need to score.

Aguayo, R. kickoff 65 yards to the BC0, touchback.
1-10 at Bc25 BOSTON COLLEGE drive start at 03:02.
1-10 at Bc25 4-2-5 Hilliman,J rush up middle for 15 yards to the BC40, 1ST DOWN BC (Ramsey, J.;Andrews, N.), clock 02:47. 6 in the box vs. 22 personnel and FSU still has the chance to make a tackle for a 2 yard gain, but Mario Edwards Jr. can't bring him down.
1-10 at Bc40 4-2-5 Hilliman,J rush right for 4 yards to the BC44 (Darby, R.), clock 02:19. Power. FSU seems to be concerned with not giving up the big play before half, but it getting gashed up the middle.
2-6 at Bc44 4-2-5 Alston,S rush left for 16 yards to the FS40, 1ST DOWN BC (Hunter, T.), clock 01:53. First time in several weeks Hunter has been slow to react to the jet motion and it results in the corner getting turned.
1-10 at Fs40 4-2-5 Murphy,T sacked for loss of 14 yards to the BC46 (Ramsey, J.), clock 01:19. BC wants to take a shot, faking the jet sweep they just hit a big play on. FSU blitzes Ramsey from the slot and he comes free, dropping Murphy for a huge loss.
2-24 at Bc46 4-2-5 Murphy,T rush quarterback draw for 1 yard to the BC47, out-of-bounds (Williams, P.J.), clock 01:02. Fake jet sweep, QB keeper. Really nice job by Matthew Thomas of maintaining leverage.

4-11 at Fs41 Timeout Boston College, clock 00:14.

1-10 at Fs18 TEAM rush for loss of 3 yards to the FS15.
2-13 at Fs15 End of half, clock 00:00.
Drive: 1 plays, minus 3 yards, TOP 00:07
Florida State 17, Boston College 10 3 Possessions, 2 TDs and a turnover on a bogus non-call. Jimbo clearly feels comfortable playing a close margin game as it seems like FSU can score in a hurry when it needs to.
