Florida State football film review: Louisville 4th quarter

New, 124 comments

FSU outscored Louisville 21-7 in the fourth quarter.

Every week we break down the result of the previous game. Who really played well for the Seminoles against Louisville? 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.

D-D At Form Play Analysis
1-10 at Lou36 425 Dyer,M. rush left for 5 yards to the LOU41, out-of-bounds (Northrup, R.). OZ from gun. Walker does a nice job to stretch the play out and force Dyer back indside but needs to do a petter job of holding the PoA. Reggie is excellent in pursuit, scraping under control and making a nice form tackle.
2-5 at Lou41 425 Dyer,M. rush up middle for loss of 1 yard to the LOU40 (Goldman, E.). IZ. Mitchell does a nice job holding the PoA on a double team. Goldman absolutely destroys the pulling guard and makes the TFL. He good.
3-6 at Lou40 3-2-6 Gardner, W. slant pass incomplete to Parker, D. (Williams, P.J.). FSU is in dime with a pass rushing package on the DL. Casher is standing up at OLB, Featherston at DE and MEJr and 90 at DT and NG. MEjr bull rushes the OG and Gardner is forced to get rid of it on the slant. PJ with an awesome PBU. He seems to be getting back to the 2013 version.
4-6 at Lou40 Johnson, R. punt 32 yards to the FS28, Greene, R. return 7 yards to the FS35 (Christian, G.). Jalen is inches from the block.
Drive: 5 plays, 16 yards, TOP 02:27 Big stop from the Defense. Just all around excellent play from all 3 levels.
1-10 at Fs35 FLORIDA STATE drive start at 13:36.
1-10 at Fs35 11 Gun Winston, J. sideline pass complete to O'Leary, N. for 18 yards to the LOU47, 1ST DOWN FS, out-of-bounds (Holliman, G.). FSU in their bunch formation. Jameis does an excellent job of getting through his progressions quickly and finds 35 uncovered in the flats. Its a good thing b/c Hart gets smoked. After the catch the Golden Cub turns into the Golden Grizzly Bear, eating UL DBs for dinner.
1-10 at Lou47 11 Gun Winston, J. crossing pass incomplete to Rudolph, T., QB hurry by Kelsey, K.. Same formation to the opposite side. This time O'Leary stays in to Pass block with UL showing blitz. For some reason O'Leary just decides not to block anyone. Jameis has to get rid of it early and throws wide to Rudolph. A shame b/c 15 was wide open on the smash route.
2-10 at Lou47 11 Gun Winston, J. CU pass incomplete to Wilson, J. (Dawson, N.). Same formation and same play. Jameis has Bobo on the curl but the ball is tipped on the LoS and nearly picked. Very lucky.
3-10 at Lou47 11 Gun Winston, J. slant pass complete to Lane, E. for 47 yards to the LOU0, 1ST DOWN FS, TOUCHDOWN, clock 12:48. Like Jimbo said, this is dangerous but Jameis threads the needle by throwing it behind the DB's ear who is in a trail position. Ermon makes an unbelievable catch in traffic, I'm not sure how he even sees the ball, then makes defenders miss and gets to paydirt. These are the types of plays your going to get with Jameis, he can fit balls into spaces that most NFL QBs can't. A WR is always open with the perfect throw.

Aguayo, R. kick attempt good.
FLORIDA STATE 28, LOUISVILLE 24
Drive: 4 plays, 65 yards, TOP 00:48 Huge drive to take the lead.
Aguayo, R. kickoff 61 yards to the LOU4, Radcliff, B. return 19 yards to the LOU23 (Waisome, N.).
1-10 at Lou23 LOUISVILLE drive start at 12:48.
1-10 at Lou23 425 Gardner, W. deep pass complete to Parker, D. for 51 yards to the FS26, 1ST DOWN LOU (Darby, R.). FSU goes single high with Nate in the box. Gardner sees 1 on 1 with Parker and its probably and automatic fade call. Darby has excellent coverage but this is absolute bullshit. One of the most blatant OPI's I've seen all season. Seriously, what in the hell is the ref looking at? Huge play for UL.

1-10 at Fs26 425 Dyer,M. rush left for 14 yards to the FS12, 1ST DOWN LOU, out-of-bounds (Andrews, N.). UL in Jumbo. MT7 and MEJr actually do a nice job of penetrating into the backfield and almost blow up the play. Somehow Dyer squeezes through and breaks off a big run. Dyer is really good.
1-10 at Fs12 425 Dyer,M. rush up middle for 5 yards to the FS7 (Walker, D.). IZ. UL has this blocked really well. Northrup over pursues and gets sealed, leaving a big hole in the cutback lane. FSU on their heals.
2-5 at Fs07 425 Gardner, W. crossing pass complete to Christian, G. for 6 yards to the FS1, 1ST DOWN LOU (Andrews, N.). UL runs crossing routes. Nate seems to be too deep and is also late in recognizing the crosser. Tough play to defend, but Nate needs to be better.
1-G at Fs01 5-3-3 Dyer,M. rush up middle for no gain to the FS1 (Northrup, R.). Excellent job to hold the point.
2-G at Fs01 5-3-3 Dyer,M. rush right for 1 yard to the FS0, TOUCHDOWN, clock 09:20. This is just awful alignment. UL motions to unbalanced right but the FSU defense doesnt adjust. Somebody needs to recognize the numbers advantage and shift the defense. UL has the numbers and walks in. Frustrating.
Wallace, J. kick attempt good.
LOUISVILLE 31, FLORIDA STATE 28
Drive: 6 plays, 77 yards, TOP 03:28 Bad luck on an awful missed call and a couple of alignment mistakes, Gross
Wallace, J. kickoff 61 yards to the FS4, Whitfield, K. return 26 yards to the FS30 (Brown,K.). Sheesh Kermit almost finally breaks one.
1-10 at Fs30 FLORIDA STATE drive start at 09:20.
1-10 at Fs30 11 Gun Winston, J. slant pass complete to Greene, R. for 10 yards to the FS40, 1ST DOWN FS (Gaines,C.). Pretty simple read here. UL giving Rashad cushion, he breaks off the route and Jameis hits him in stride.
1-10 at Fs40 11 Gun Winston, J. deep pass incomplete to O'Leary, N. (Sample,J.). Jameis has Bobo and Rashad open on crossing routes but decides to push it down field to O'Leary who is surrounded but UL defenders. He makes a ridiculous throw but 35 gets hit immediately and cant hold on. Sometimes 5 needs to take the easy completion.
2-10 at Fs40 11 Gun Winston, J. sideline pass incomplete, QB hurry by Mount, D.. Yikes....Hart and Matias get destroyed and force Jameis out. I can't see if there are any WR's open b/c ESPN has the most ridiculous camera angles. Bad stuff from the OL.
3-10 at Fs40 10 Gun Winston, J. crossing pass complete to Wilson, J. for 13 yards to the LOU47, 1ST DOWN FS (Gaines,C.). Trips to the field. Same play as the Ermon TD. Bobo has 1 on 1 covergae to the boundary and beats his guy inside for an easy first down.
1-10 at Lou47 10 Gun Winston, J. sideline pass incomplete to Rudolph, T.. Man...this is open. Rudoph runs a double move and smokes the DB and is wide open down the sideline. Hoefeld gets absolutely mauled by the NG which forces Jameis to throw off his back foot out of bounds. Damn.
2-10 at Lou47 10 Gun Winston, J. slant pass complete to Lane, E. for 11 yards to the LOU36, 1ST DOWN FS. FSU running twins to each side with mirror routes. Inside guy runs a slant. ouside guy runs a deep in. The LB jumps Rudolph on the slant, leaving a Ermon wide open. Jameis throws a laser.
1-10 at Lou36 11 Gun Williams, K. rush up middle for 4 yards to the LOU32 (Sample,J.). Firstr run of this drive and OMG this could have went for a TD. IZ and the OL and O'Leary completely wall off the left side of the UL DL. For some reason Los cuts inside on O'Leary's block instead of outside. Frustrating. Still a nice 1st down gain.
2-6 at Lou32 11 Gun Winston, J. deep pass incomplete to Greene, R. (Floyd, T.). Want to throw my computer against the wall. 80 smokes the DB and is running wide open down the seam for an easy TD, Problem is, Hoefeld gets mauled again by the NG and forces Jameis to throw falling away. The ball is underthrown allowing the DB to make up ground and break up the pass. Pretty sure Jackson houdl have helped Hoefeld here but missed the pre snap shift from the NG. Hoefled may not have made the call.
3-6 at Lou32 10 Gun Winston, J. sacked for loss of 12 yards to the LOU44 (Mauldin, L.;Rankins, S.). UL runs a twist. Mauldin loops under the NG and blow up Jackson and Hoefeld. Awful time for a sack. Tough job for a Freshmen center.
4-18 at Lou44 Beatty, C. punt 32 yards to the LOU12, fair catch by Rogers,E.. Pretty good.
Drive: 9 plays, 26 yards, TOP 03:25
1-10 at Lou12 LOUISVILLE drive start at 05:55.
1-10 at Lou12 425 Dyer,M. rush up middle for 2 yards to the LOU14 (Northrup, R.). Nice job from Northrup to diagnose and fill quickly.
2-8 at Lou14 PENALTY LOU false start (Brown, Ja.) 4 yards to the LOU10.
2-12 at Lou10 425 Gardner, W. sideline pass incomplete to Dyer,M.. MEJr and Goldman run a twist and destroy the left side of UL's OL. Gardner has to throw quickly to the back and misfires. Northrup was there in coverage if he was able to complete it.
3-12 at Lou10 425 Dyer,M. rush up middle for 1 yard to the LOU11 (Edwards, M.). UL going safe here with an IZ. MEJr blows up Dyer.
4-11 at Lou11 Johnson, R. punt 31 yards to the LOU42, Greene, R. return 4 yards to the LOU38 (Gaines,C.).
Drive: 3 plays, minus 1 yards, TOP 02:00 Huge defensive stop after an awful sack. Momentum back with FSU
1-10 at Lou38 FLORIDA STATE drive start at 03:55.
1-10 at Lou38 Cook, D. rush right for 38 yards to the LOU0, 1ST DOWN FS, TOUCHDOWN, clock 03:46. This is just unbelievable blocking and explosive running. Hart and Jackson are able to seal. NOL kicks out the DE. Ermon psuhes the corner into the sidelines and Cook blows by the safeties. Dagger. Beautiful

Aguayo, R. kick attempt good.
FLORIDA STATE 35, LOUISVILLE 31
Drive: 1 plays, 38 yards, TOP 00:09
Aguayo, R. kickoff 58 yards to the LOU7, Radcliff, B. return 10 yards to the LOU17 (Marshall, T.). Great coverage, excellent tackle from T Marshall
1-10 at Lou17 LOUISVILLE drive start at 03:46.
1-10 at Lou17 425 Gardner, W. crossing pass complete to Rogers,E. for 14 yards to the LOU31, 1ST DOWN LOU (Ramsey, J.). Jalen in trail technique but is a little late to recognize the route. Does a nice job of limiting the YAC.
1-10 at Lou31 425 Gardner, W. sideline pass incomplete to Christian, G.. Need Nate to recognize this sooner. TE runs an out and is open but Gardner misses him.
2-10 at Lou31 425 Gardner, W. crossing pass complete to Quick, J. for 8 yards to the LOU39 (Hunter, T.). Tyler giving the slot some cushion, UL WR recognizes and breaks off the route. Nice tackle.in th open field.
3-2 at Lou39 425 Gardner, W. sideline pass incomplete to Parker, D.. Petrino taking a shot here. PJ 1 on 1 with Parker on the outside and Gardner throws the go route. PJ is all over this and probably could have picked it if he saw the ball.
4-2 at Lou39 425 Gardner, W. crossing pass incomplete to Standberry, C.. FSU gets away with one here. I love this call from Petrino. Catch FSU flowing to the PA side and throw it back. Reggie has to be more disciplined here, his responsibilty is the TE. Magically Hollin is engaged with the OG but sees the TE releasing accross the formation and at the very least, made Gardner throw it over him. **sigh of relief

Drive: 5 plays, 22 yards, TOP 01:09 Huge stop
1-10 at Lou39 FLORIDA STATE drive start at 02:37.
1-10 at Lou39 21 Gun Cook, D. rush left for 2 yards to the LOU37 (Rankins, S.). IZ. UL is bringing the house expecting run. Cook does a nice job to break a few tackles and gain 2 yards
2-8 at Lou37 Timeout LOUISVILLE, clock 02:27. .
2-8 at Lou37 21 Cook, D. rush up middle for 2 yards to the LOU35 (Dubose, B.;Rankins, S.). UL once again stacking the box. Power gets a few yards. I think Jimbo was knew what he was going to do on 3rd down and was setting this up.
3-6 at Lou35 Timeout LOUISVILLE, clock 02:20.
3-6 at Lou35 21 Winston, J. crossing pass complete to Stevenson, F. for 35 yards to the LOU0, 1ST DOWN FS, TOUCHDOWN, clock 02:11. Beautiful play design. IZ PA. Freddie slips out and O'Leary comes accross the formation. UL is crashing so hard that both are wide open. Freddie strolls into the EZ untouched. Ball game.

Aguayo, R. kick attempt good.
FLORIDA STATE 42, LOUISVILLE 31
Drive: 3 plays, 39 yards, TOP 00:26

1-10 at Lou25 3-2-6 Gardner, W. crossing pass complete to Parker, D. for 11 yards to the LOU36, 1ST DOWN LOU (Brutus, L.). Defense just keeping the play in front of them. Nice tackle from Brutus.
1-10 at Lou36 3-2-6 Gardner, W. crossing pass complete to DeLa Cruz, K. for 9 yards to the LOU45 (Brutus, L.). FSU will let them complete these crossing routes. Brutus is a very good tackler.
2-1 at Lou45 3-2-6 Gardner, W. sideline pass incomplete to Parker, D. (Casher, C.). Not sure where Gardner was throwing this but he looks sufficiently confused. Casher almost makes the pick on the sidelines haha.
3-1 at Lou45 3-2-6 Scott, L. rush up middle for 16 yards to the FS39, 1ST DOWN LOU (Walker, D.). Only 3 down lineman and every one else bailing into coverage. No big deal.
1-10 at Fs39 3-2-6 Gardner, W. CU pass incomplete to Christian, G. (Hunter, T.). Northrup and Hunter close on the hitch and break up the pass.
2-10 at Fs39 3-2-6 Gardner, W. sacked for loss of 12 yards to the LOU49 (Goldman, E.). Hahaha holy shit. Goldman tosses the OC to the side like a rag doll and is on Garnder so damn fast. A man that big, should not move that fast. Freak.
3-22 at Lou49 Timeout LOUISVILLE, clock 00:57.
3-22 at Lou49 3-2-6 Gardner, W. pass intercepted by Northrup, R. at the FS38, Northrup, R. return 0 yards to the FS38. Gardner throws into triple coverage and Northrup picks it.
