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

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 Formation Play Comment
1-10 at Cit50 Start of 2nd quarter, clock 15:00.
1-10 at Cit50 4-2-5 Aaron Miller rush over right guard for 10 yards to the FS40, 1ST DOWN CIT (Smith, Terr.;Ramsey, J.), clock 14:48. The interior DL is not ready and gets dominated on a QB follow play.
1-10 at Fs40 4-2-5 Tyler Renew rush for 1 yard to the FS39 (Mitchell, D.;Casher, C.), clock 14:13. Triple option, dive give. Derrick Mitchell does a beautiful job of getting off the block and meeting the back at the line of scrimmage.

Injured player for FSU is #99-Lawrence-Stample.
2-9 at Fs39 4-2-5 Aaron Miller sideline pass incomplete to Brandon Eakins, clock 13:41. Play action fake gets the receiver behind Ronald Darby, but he cannot haul the pass in.
3-9 at Fs39 4-2-5 Tyler Renew rush up middle for 2 yards to the FS37 (Nnadi, D.;Mitchell, D.), clock 13:25. Derrick Mitchell is left unblocked on the counter option and tackles the dive back for a short gain.
4-7 at Fs37 4-2-5 Aaron Miller deep pass incomplete to Alex Glover (Hunter, T.), clock 12:52. The Citadel runs a verticals play and tries to hit the receiver behind the corner and in front of the deep safety. The pass is a little late and Tyler Hunter is able to jar the ball loose.

Drive: 11 plays, 38 yards, TOP 05:51
1-10 at Fs37 FLORIDA STATE drive start at 12:52.
1-10 at Fs37 20 Gun Cook, D. rush left for 17 yards to the CIT46, 1ST DOWN FS (Rah Muhammad), clock 12:45. Outside zone is blocked extremely well. Bobby Hart gets an excellent backside cut and Trey Jackson seals the backer who is overruning the play and Cook is into the secondary untouched. Very close to breaking this one.
1-10 at Cit46 11 Gun Winston, J. SH pass incomplete to Whitfield, K., clock 12:04. Jet sweep and Whitfield mishandles the pop pass. The snap was probably a hair late relative to Kermit's motion.
2-10 at Cit46 11 Gun Winston, J. ML pass complete to Greene, R. for 6 yards to the CIT40 (DeVonta Delaney), clock 11:47. Confusion between Matias and Cam Erving as to who should take the DE results in the DE splitting the two of them. Winston does a good job evading the rush and finding Greene on the hitch route.
3-4 at Cit40 11 Gun Winston, J. MR pass complete to O'Leary, N. for 5 yards to the CIT35, 1ST DOWN FS (Carl Robinson), clock 11:15. Some variant of Houston here. Nick O'Leary is virtually un-coverable by a linebacker on these option routes.
1-10 at Cit35 20 Pony Winston, J. screen pass complete to Wilson, J. for 7 yards to the CIT28, out-of-bounds (DeVonta Delaney), clock 10:50. Packaged play, OZ with a bubble. The Citadel is playing so far off that the bubble goes for 7 despite Christian Green not getting much of a block.
2-3 at Cit28 21 Pony Cook, D. rush up middle for no gain to the CIT28 (DeVonta Delaney), clock 10:13. Inside zone. Cook needs to show a little more patience with this run and let the blocks develop playside. Instead he tries to cut it all the way back around the backside and gets tackled by an unblocked safety.
3-3 at Cit28 11 Gun Williams, K. rush right for 6 yards to the CIT22, 1ST DOWN FS (Tevin Floyd), clock 09:40. Outside zone is blocked reasonably well. Bobby Hart gives too much ground, forcing Williams to alter his path to get around Hart.
1-10 at Cit22 21 Pony Winston, J. rush QX for 1 yard to the CIT21 (Tevin Floyd;Mark Thomas), clock 08:59. The screen play is blown up when Tre Jackson doesn't slow down the DT at all, forcing Winston to scramble for minimal yardage.
2-9 at Cit21 20 Pony Williams, K. rush over right end for 14 yards to the CIT7, 1ST DOWN FS (Malik Diggs;Walker Smith), clock 08:21. Outside zone. Tre Jackson gets an excellent block at the second level. Freddie Stevenson does not get his man on the ground with his cut block. Karlos does the rest, carrying defenders an extra 5 yards.
1-G at Cit07 21 Twins Cook, D. rush over right end for 2 yards to the CIT5 (Walker Smith), clock 08:01. Inside zone. Really good fill by The Citadel's unblocked safety results in a minimal gain.
2-G at Cit05 12 Twins Cook, D. rush left for 5 yards to the CIT0, TOUCHDOWN, clock 07:28. Outside zone. Cam Erving gives too much ground, but Cook has enough speed to get around the end for a walk-in TD.

Aguayo, R. kick attempt good.

Florida State 21, The Citadel 0

Drive: 11 plays, 63 yards, TOP 05:24

Aguayo, R. kickoff 65 yards to the CIT0, touchback.
1-10 at Cit25 THE CITADEL drive start at 07:28.
1-10 at Cit25 4-2-5 Aaron Miller rush up middle for 3 yards to the CIT28 (Smith, Terr.;Ramsey, J.), clock 07:08. Great fill by Jalen Ramsey on the QB follow play.
2-7 at Cit28 4-2-5 Tyler Renew rush over left guard for 2 yards to the CIT30 (Nnadi, D.), clock 06:30. Desmond Hollin drives the guard into the path of the dive back on the triple option play, allowing the rest of the defense to rally.
3-5 at Cit30 4-2-5 Vinny Miller rush left for 7 yards to the CIT37, 1ST DOWN CIT (Nnadi, D.), clock 05:54. Triple option play is defended well, but once again Nick Waisome can't make the open field tackle on the pitch man.
1-10 at Cit37 4-2-5 Aaron Miller rush for loss of 5 yards to the CIT32 (Hollin, D.), clock 05:14. Desmond Hollin is left completely unblocked on the speed option, forcing the QB to reverse field and get tackled for a loss.
2-15 at Cit32 4-2-5 Aaron Miller sideline pass incomplete to Cam Jackson, clock 04:47. Out route to the slot receiver is thrown into the dirt 4 yards in front of the target. Nate Andrews with excellent coverage on the play.
3-15 at Cit32 4-2-5 Aaron Miller rush OR for 3 yards to the CIT35 (Ramsey, J.), clock 04:31. Load option to the field is strung out very well by FSU. Miller attempts to stiff arm Jalen Ramsey, who fights through it and carries the QB all the way through the sideline.
4-12 at Cit35 Will Vanvick punt 54 yards to the FS11, Greene, R. return 10 yards to the FS21, out-of-bounds (Carson Smith), PENALTY FS illegal block (Jackson, M.) 10 yards to the FS11, 1st and 10, FS ball on FS11.

Drive: 6 plays, 10 yards, TOP 03:30
1-10 at Fs11 FLORIDA STATE drive start at 03:58.
1-10 at Fs11 11 Gun Winston, J. screen pass complete to Pender, M. for 2 yards to the FS13 (Malik Diggs;Israel Battle), clock 03:34. The called flare screen is read very well by the middle of the Citadel defense, who chase the play down for a short gain.
2-8 at Fs13 11 Pender, M. rush up middle for 7 yards to the FS20 (Julian Baxter;Carson Smith), clock 03:00. The Citadel is clearly expecting pass here as they only have 6 defenders in the box on this inside zone play. Bobby Hart doesn't even have anyone to block.
3-1 at Fs20 22 Pender, M. rush over right guard for 6 yards to the FS26, 1ST DOWN FS (Malik Diggs), clock 02:30. Inside zone in the short yardage set. Pender does a great job finding the cutback lane for the easy conversion.
1-10 at Fs26 22 Pender, M. rush right for 4 yards to the FS30 (Carson Smith), clock 02:03. This is a T scheme run, which is basically power blocking except the back aims outside the tackle and the playside guard pulls instead of the backside guard. Freddie Stevenson's cut block is only partially effective as the defender is able to keep his feet and make the initial hit on Pender.
2-6 at Fs30 11 Gun Winston, J. deep out pass complete to Lane, E. for 14 yards to the FS44, 1ST DOWN FS, out-of-bounds, clock 01:42. Nice blitz pickup by Mario Pender allows Winston time to deliver a very long throw to the corner route on the opposite sideline.
1-10 at Fs44 11 Gun Winston, J. sideline pass complete to Greene, R. for 9 yards to the CIT47, out-of-bounds, clock 01:38. Double outs to the boundary. The Citadel defense is playing well off the receivers and Jameis takes the free yards.
2-1 at Cit47 11 Gun Pender, M. rush over left end for 2 yards to the CIT45, 1ST DOWN FS (Carson Smith;James Riley), clock 01:31. Same packaged play FSU has run several times, but this time they hand off to the back running the OZ. Pender shows nice patience to pick his way through traffic for the first down.
1-10 at Cit45 11 Gun Winston, J. sideline pass complete to O'Leary, N. for 18 yards to the CIT27, 1ST DOWN FS (Carson Smith;James Riley), clock 01:15. The Citadel can't cover O'Leary and apparently can't tackle him either as he drags half the Citadel defense for several extra yards.
1-10 at Cit27 11 Gun Winston, J. sideline pass complete to Lane, E. for 5 yards to the CIT22, out-of-bounds, clock 01:10. Bobby Hart is beaten by the DE's inside move, forcing Winston to scramble and hit Lane on the far sideline. This may not look it, but getting this ball all the way to the far sideline while scrambling is an impressive throw and display of arm strength.
2-5 at Cit22 11 Gun Winston, J. MR pass complete to Williams, K. for 9 yards to the CIT13, 1ST DOWN FS, out-of-bounds (Cody Richardson), clock 01:03. FSU is running some version of 4 verts here and Jameis shows good patience in finding the Karlos Williams underneath the voided coverage.
1-10 at Cit13 11 Gun Williams, K. rush over right end for 11 yards to the CIT2, 1ST DOWN FS (Julian Baxter;Malik Diggs), clock 00:55. Power scheme is blocked well and Karlos does the rest with power once he's through the second level.
1-G at Cit02 11 Gun Winston, J. rush QX for 1 yard to the CIT1 (Carl Robinson;Austin Harrell), clock 00:32. Seeing it live, I thought Jameis was being impatient when he pulled it down and ran, but on second viewing, the routes were fully developed and nobody was open.
2-G at Cit01 Timeout Florida State, clock 00:32.
2-G at Cit01 23 Winston, J. middle pass complete to O'Leary, N. for 1 yard to the CIT0, TOUCHDOWN, clock 00:29. Mario Edwards Jr. in the game at H back. Play action fake. Nobody runs with O'Leary to the corner.

Aguayo, R. kick attempt good.

Florida State 28, The Citadel 0

Drive: 13 plays, 89 yards, TOP 03:29
. Aguayo, R. kickoff 65 yards to the CIT0, touchback
1-10 at Cit25 THE CITADEL drive start at 00:29.
1-10 at Cit25 4-2-5 Aaron Miller rush OR for no gain to the CIT25 (Ramsey, J.;Casher, C.), clock 00:07. Load option is strung out very well by the FSU defense and the QB has to eat it at the line of scrimmage.
2-10 at Cit25 4-2-5 Aaron Miller sideline pass complete to Rudder Brown for 12 yards to the CIT37, 1ST DOWN CIT. Vertical pass is behind the receiver, causing him to lose his footing immediately after the catch.
1-10 at Cit37 End of half, clock 00:00.

Drive: 2 plays, 12 yards, TOP 00:29

Florida State 28, The Citadel 0 Completely dominant first half. The defense has given up some yards, but clearly haven't spent a whole lot of time working against this offense and are playing very safe coverages.
