Florida State football film review: Gators 2nd quarter

New, 51 comments

The quarter that made the difference.

Every week we break down the result of the previous game. Who really played well for the Seminoles against Florida? 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
3-7 at Uf28 Start of 2nd quarter, clock 15:00.
3-7 at Uf28 4-2-5 Harris,T. sideline pass complete to Robinson,D. for 12 yards to the UF40, 1ST DOWN UF, out-of-bounds, clock 14:51. Really nice out route by Robinson gets open against man coverage and Treon is able to step up and deliver a nice ball due to excellent blitz pickup by the Gator offense.
1-10 at Uf40 4-2-5 Taylor,Kel. rush over left end for 3 yards to the UF43 (Casher, C.), clock 14:26. Zone read and Harris once again gives when he should have kept. Chris Casher is clearly playing inside and eventually tackles the back from behind.
2-7 at Uf43 4-2-5 Harris,T. rush quarterback draw for 2 yards to the UF45 (Walker, D.), clock 13:51. QB Draw. Really nice job by Demarcus Walker of shedding and cutting Harris off before he can turn the corner.
3-5 at Uf45 4-2-5 Harris,T. slant pass incomplete to Dunbar,Q., clock 13:22. Darby jumps the slant, cutting Dunbar off from the ball and knocking him down. Dunbar wants a flag, but this is exactly the same play as the first interception.
4-5 at Uf45 Christy,K. punt 48 yards to the FS7, out-of-bounds.
Drive: 6 plays, 20 yards, TOP 02:57
1-10 at Fs07 FLORIDA STATE drive start at 13:15.
1-10 at Fs07 11 Trey Cook, D. rush over right guard for 4 yards to the FS11 (Gorman,J.), clock 13:04. Looks like the same wham play from the first play, but Matias gets pushed backwards and O'Leary can't get across the formation. Tre Jackson gets great push and Cook worms his way behind him for 4 yards. Good job making something out of not much blocking-wise.
2-6 at Fs11 11 Cook, D. rush right for 10 yards to the FS21, 1ST DOWN FS (Poole,B.), clock 12:35. Outside zone. Tremendous job by the right side of the line. Really nice turn out by Bobby Hart and Cook isn't touched until he's 8 yards downfield.
1-10 at Fs21 11 Trey Williams, K. rush over left guard for 27 yards to the FS48, 1ST DOWN FS (Poole,B.), clock 12:12. Wham blocking again. O'Leary cuts the backside DE and Hart seals the backside linebacker, creating a huge cutback lane and Karlos does the rest.
Injured player for UF is #24-Poole. Walks off the field.
1-10 at Fs48 11 Williams, K. rush right for 9 yards to the UF43 (Gorman,J.), clock 11:37. Outside zone. Bobby Hart and Tre Jackson pancake the DE and the linebacker overruns the play, leaving the alley wide open. Great seal by Cam Erving.
2-1 at Uf43 11 Gun Trey Winston, J. WS pass complete to Rudolph, T. for loss of 2 yards to the UF45 (Wilson,Q.), clock 11:04. Packaged play. OZ and a bubble. With the safety off and the alley defender blitzing, the bubble should go for a nice gain but Bobo Wilson fails utterly to get the corner blocked and Wilson makes the tackle for loss.
3-3 at Uf45 11 Gun Bunch Winston, J. crossing pass complete to Greene, R. for 5 yards to the UF40, 1ST DOWN FS, out-of-bounds (Poole,B.), clock 10:44. Mesh from bunch creates a rub vs. man coverage and Rashad Greene is wide open to the boundary.
1-10 at Uf40 11 Cook, D. rush right for 1 yard to the UF39 (Bullard,J.), clock 10:14. Outside zone. For probably the first time in his life Dalvin Cook doesn't bounce it outside when he should. Johnson gets beat by Bullard on the backside and makes the play when Cook cuts it back inside.
2-9 at Uf39 11 Gun Winston, J. sideline pass incomplete to O'Leary, N., clock 09:54. Really aggressive coverage by Antonio Morrison, who wraps his upfield arm around O'Leary and turns him away from the ball. This kind of play nearly always draws a flag. Jimbo is livid.
3-9 at Uf39 11 Gun Winston, J. deep pass complete to Greene, R. for 29 yards to the UF10, 1ST DOWN FS, out-of-bounds (Hargreaves,V.), clock 09:40. 3 Verts. Great back shoulder throw and catch vs. an elite corner in Hargreaves. Shad lets him know about it after the play.
1-G at Uf10 11 Gun Trey Winston, J. rush over left end for 3 yards to the UF7 (Taylor,M.), clock 09:04. QB sweep is an automatic check out of this formation. Bullard gets the better of Matias, forcing Jameis to cut it inside and minimizing the gain.
2-G at Uf07 21 Bunch Winston, J. rush for loss of 3 yards to the UF10, fumble by Winston, J., clock 08:17. Fumbled exchange. Ball gets kicked and Winston is still able to get on top of it. Sure looks like Dante Fowler Jr. throws a punch right in front of a ref getting up off the pile.
3-G at Uf10 Timeout Florida State, clock 08:17.
3-G at Uf10 11 Empty Winston, J. middle pass complete to O'Leary, N. for 10 yards to the UF0, TOUCHDOWN, clock 08:12. Empty backfield with Karlos Williams flexed out wide. Great matchup manufactured via formation. The empty set with Greene and O'Leary in the slots guarantees you will get one of them matched up on a backer/safety. Full blitz zero coverage. The vertical route isn't really open but Winston puts it where only his guy can get it and O'Leary goes and gets it.
Aguayo, R. kick attempt good.
Florida State 14, Florida 9
Drive: 12 plays, 93 yards, TOP 05:08
Aguayo, R. kickoff 65 yards to the UF0, Debose,A. return 23 yards to the UF23 (Smith, K.).
1-10 at Uf23 FLORIDA drive start at 08:07.
1-10 at Uf23 4-2-5 Harris,T. sideline pass incomplete to Robinson,D. (Williams, P.J.), clock 08:04. Uncalled false start on Robinson. PJ Williams is coming on a corner blitz and Treon tries to hit Robinson on a hitch behind the blitz but PJ elevates and breaks up the pass.
2-10 at Uf23 4-2-5 Jones,M. rush over left guard for 3 yards to the UF26 (Northrup, R.;Mitchell, D.), clock 07:40. Counter trey from gun. Poor counter step from Matt Jones doesn't hold the defense at all. Derrick Mitchell sheds and squeeze the hole beautifully. Great effort.
3-7 at Uf26 4-2-5 Harris,T. deep pass complete to Dunbar,Q. for 14 yards to the UF40, 1ST DOWN UF, clock 07:15. Tight camera angles don't show us the route, but Dunbar is sitting on the field wide open in the curl/hook zone. Jimbo said Ramsey got out of the zone.
1-10 at Uf40 4-2-5 Harris,T. sideline pass complete to Dunbar,Q. for 1 yard to the UF41, out-of-bounds (Williams, P.J.), clock 06:51. Reggie Northrup and Jalen Ramsey come free on a blitz and Harris gets it out to Dunbar in the flat on a screen, where he's tackled for no gain.
2-9 at Uf41 4-2-5 Jones,M. rush over right guard for 3 yards to the UF44 (Mitchell, D.), clock 06:11. Another great individual effort from Mitchell, who puts the guard on the ground and makes the tackle on this inside zone run.
3-6 at Uf44 4-2-5 Harris,T. deep pass intercepted by Brutus, L. at the FS17, Brutus, L. return 0 yards to the FS17. Vertical throw to Dunbar and Brutus has it read all the way. Harris overthrows it and Brutus is waiting on the ball. Effectively a 39 yard punt. No route to that side of the field v. cover 2 to hold the safety. Harris really struggled throwing downfield.
Drive: 6 plays, 21 yards, TOP 02:23
1-10 at Fs17 (Dunbar,Q.).
1-10 at Fs17 FLORIDA STATE drive start at 05:44.
1-10 at Fs17 11 Tight Cook, D. rush right for 23 yards to the FS40, 1ST DOWN FS, out-of-bounds (Gorman,J.), clock 05:33. OZ left is blown up by Caleb Brantley, but Cook is able to bounce it back behind the seal block by Tre Jackson and turn it into a big gain.
1-10 at Fs40 21 Twins Cook, D. rush left for no gain to the FS40 (Gorman,J.), clock 05:00. OZ again is blocked pretty well but develops slowly and Gorman flies up aggressively from the safety position to make the tackle.
2-10 at Fs40 21 Pony Winston, J. rush QX for 6 yards to the FS46, out-of-bounds, PENALTY UF personal foul (Willis,G.) 15 yards to the UF39, 1ST DOWN FS, clock 04:30. Fowler beats Johnson with an inside move, but there is no contain and Winston is able to escape the pocket and scramble for 6. On the sideline Willis takes a really dumb cheap shot at Winston.
1-10 at Uf39 1st and 10.
1-10 at Uf39 21 Twins Winston, J. deep out pass complete to O'Leary, N. for 19 yards to the UF20, 1ST DOWN FS, clock 04:16. UF brings 6 and gets heavy pressure. How Jameis steps up, gets the throw off while simultaneously dodging the unblocked green dog from Morrison is unbelievable.
1-10 at Uf20 21 Pony Winston, J. rush left for 6 yards to the UF14 (Hargreaves,V.), clock 03:41. Zone read keep by Winston fools everybody. Remarkable job of reversing out and getting over the top by Dante Fowler Jr after being fooled initially.
2-4 at Uf14 11 Trey Cook, D. rush over right tackle for 10 yards to the UF4, 1ST DOWN FS (Maye,M.;Morrison,A.), clock 03:07. Wham again. FSU is eating the Gators up with this run.
1-G at Uf04 11 Gun Trey Williams, K. rush right for loss of 2 yards to the UF6 (Bullard,J.), clock 02:40. Bullard gets incredibly low, gaining leverage on Tre Jackson and pushing him into the backfield, disrupting the inside zone run.
2-G at Uf06 21 Bunch Winston, J. ML pass complete to O'Leary, N. for 6 yards to the UF0, TOUCHDOWN, clock 02:14. Play action scissor concept with Ermon Lane going to the post and O'Leary going to the corner. Jameis hits O'Leary but could have taken his pick as Lane is standing all by himself under the goal post.
Aguayo, R. kick attempt good.
Florida State 21, Florida 9 Firing on all cylinders right now.
Drive: 8 plays, 83 yards, TOP 03:30
Aguayo, R. kickoff 65 yards to the UF0, touchback.
1-10 at Uf25 FLORIDA drive start at 02:14.
1-10 at Uf25 4-2-5 Taylor,Kel. rush right for no gain to the UF25 (Smith, Terr.;Northrup, R.), clock 01:57. The FSU DL completely dominates this play. Goldman absorbs the double team without giving any ground, leaving Terrance Smith and Reggie Northrup completely unblocked. Big hit from Reggie.
2-10 at Uf25 4-2-5 Jones,M. rush up middle for 2 yards to the UF27 (Northrup, R.;Goldman, E.), clock 01:28. Inside zone is blown up from the start by a great fill from Terrance Smith. Jones tries to cut it back but has nowhere to go as Mario Edwards Jr has stoned the tackle.
3-8 at Uf27 4-2-5 Timeout Florida State, clock 01:28.
3-8 at Uf27 4-2-5 Harris,T. sideline pass incomplete to Dunbar,Q., clock 01:24. Really nice pass rush from just the front 4 on this play. Treon gets it out quickly but it's short of the receiver.
4-8 at Uf27 Christy,K. punt 38 yards to the FS35, fair catch by Greene, R..
Drive: 3 plays, 2 yards, TOP 00:57
1-10 at Fs35 FLORIDA STATE drive start at 01:17.
1-10 at Fs35 11 Gun Winston, J. middle pass incomplete to O'Leary, N. (Neal,K.), clock 01:13. Delayed hitch to O'Leary is well defended.
2-10 at Fs35 11 Gun Winston, J. crossing pass incomplete to Greene, R. (Hargreaves,V.), clock 01:07. Tremendous coverage on the dig route by Hargreaves. He's good. Jimbo wanted a flag for intereference.
3-10 at Fs35 PENALTY FS false start (Erving, C.) 5 yards to the FS30, clock 01:07.
3-15 at Fs30 11 Gun Trey Cook, D. rush right for 3 yards to the FS33 (Poole,B.), clock 01:00. Content to punt it away at this point.
4-12 at Fs33 Beatty, C. rush for loss of 10 yards to the FS23, fumble by Beatty, C. recovered by FS Beatty, C. at FS15.
Drive: 4 plays, minus 20 yards, TOP 00:24
Previous play was a fumble by the punter. Recovered by the punter. Ugly. FSU didn't adjust to a numbers advantage on the left side and 2 guys are on Beatty before he can even drop the ball.
1-10 at Fs15 FLORIDA drive start at 00:53.
1-10 at Fs15 4-2-5 Harris,T. deep pass complete to Burton,C. for 15 yards to the FS0, 1ST DOWN UF, TOUCHDOWN, clock 00:47. Zone blitz leads to Mario Edwards Jr in coverage on the wheel route from the tight end. While the matchup isn't a good one, the truth is that none of FSU's linebackers could have covered this any better than Edwards did. Tremendous throw. Tip your cap.
Hardin,A. kick attempt good.
