Florida State film review: Defense v. UF

New, comments

The FSU defense dominated a really bad UF offense.

It's the Florida State Football Film Review. Every week we break down the result of the previous Florida State game. Who really played well for the Seminoles? Which players played poorly? Where did the coaches do well, and when did they screw up?

All analyzed plays will eventually appear in the Florida State Film Review section of the website. We do not analyze plays in garbage time.

Amazingly, this content is free. Please keep it that way by sharing it on Facebook.

Observations:

  • We preface these observations with some notes about the UF offense and offer extra perspective on the battle between the Florida O and the FSU D. UF QB Austin Appleby did not show much pocket presence, timing with throws or consistent accuracy at any level of the field. UF called the game as if they have a QB they don’t really trust to be able to open up the offense. UF has a very good RB in Jordan Scarlett but has other issues at the skill positions as well. Antonio Callaway is very talented but struggles with consistency and players like Brandon Powell and C’yontai Lewis are undersized at their respective positions. Freshman WR Tyree Cleveland is a legit deep threat but Appleby is not consistent enough with the deep ball to make the defense respect it. The offensive line has dealt with injuries and lacks any depth.
  • With that in mind, we can still observe that the FSU defense played a great game. They did would a good defense should do vs a bad offense: dominate. This started with controlling the line of scrimmage and playing mostly good coverage in the back seven.
  • A key component to UF’s gameplan was to “trade” or shift the formation pre-snap to force FSU to communicate, adjust alignment and be consistently gap sound in their run fits. FSU handled this very well from the start of the game. The 13 yard run by Scarlett that UF hit on the first drive was due to missed tackles, not bad alignment. Aside from that, FSU held the UF run game in check all game.
  • Personnel-wise, FSU mixed their 3-4 base and 4-2-5 on 1st and 2nd downs. This is something we have seen a lot over these past few weeks, particularly as FSU has faced less spread teams and feels more comfortable keeping Pugh on the field rather than an extra defensive back.
  • The plan for 3rd down was a little different this week as FSU had two different packages prepared. The first was the typical Money personnel with Kyle Meyers at Star, AJ Westbrook down at Money, and Ermon Lane and Trey Marshall at deep safety. FSU played mostly man coverages from this look. The second package was new. It still consisted of 4-1-6 personnel but had Brian Burns and Carlos Becker standing up on the edges, Josh Sweat standing up over the center and DeMarcus Walker and Derrick Nnadi with their hand down over the guards. The back six consisted of Thomas, McFadden, White, Lane, Marshall, and Westbrook. FSU effectively disguised coverage and mixed blitzes from this look had UF confused all night. Kudos to the defensive staff that put together a great plan that the players could execute and led to UF being 0/12 on 3rd down.
New 3rd down package from FSU
  • The defensive line continued to be a dominant group led by Derrick Nnadi and DeMarcus Walker. Nnadi has become a player that demands double teams and as a result, players around him are getting more 1-on-1 opportunities. It doesn’t take a film review to recognize the effect Walker had on the game vs both the run and pass.
  • FSU played a ton of Cover 2. This allowed the corners to play aggressive vs the run, vs screens and jump any short routes to the flat. FSU had no concerns for Appleby to threaten them vertically. Marquez White had one of his best games as a Seminole. At times it looked like he knew what play was coming and made a number of impact plays. This was not one of McFadden’s better games. He particularly struggled in press coverage. Despite the interception numbers on the season, he still has a ways to go in refining his press technique in getting hands on the receiver and moving his feet to mirror receivers at the release.
  • After another great performance from the defense, it’s clear there has been improvement since the beginning of the season in a few key areas:

-Health of the defensive line.

-Less coverage busts and mis-fits in the run game from the linebackers.

-Better synergy between the coaches and players in the secondary as it relates to their roles and what they are being asked to execute.

  • As we’ve cautioned, the defense has faced some bad offenses down the stretch, they haven’t faced much tempo and they haven’t faced a running QB. Because of this it’s hard to say just how much the defense has improved. Nonetheless, they have not disappointed as they closed out the year doing what they should: make bad offenses look bad.

1-10 at Uf25 Appleby,A. at QB for Florida.
1-10 at Uf25 3-4 Appleby,A. MR pass complete to Goolsby,D. for 5 yards to the UF30 (Tarvarus McFadden), clock 14:37. UF trades the TE to balance the formation then runs waggle. FSU in Cover 2 and McFadden gets a little too much depth and is late to come off on the TE that leaks to the flat.

1-10 at Uf43 3-4 Callaway,A. rush ER for 24 yards to the FS33, 1ST DOWN UF, out-of-bounds (A.J. Westbrook), clock 13:41. Nice play design by UF as they go trips bunch to the boundary and show toss action to the trip but pitch it to the receiver on an end around. Good script play that UF knew they could hit from watching film. Walker is contain and does not have the speed to slow down Callaway.
1-10 at Fs33 3-4 Appleby,A. screen pass complete to Perine,L. for 1 yard to the FS32 (Tarvarus McFadden), clock 13:06. FSU in Cover 1 with a Sam blitz called. Poor execution from UF as Appleby rushes the throw to the RB on the swing. Needs to look this off longer to force the backers to move and allow the RB to get wider with his route. Good athleticism by Sweat to chase this down and McFadden also does a nice job to recognize the play and come off his man.
2-9 at Fs32 3-4 Appleby,A. sideline pass complete to Perine,L. for 25 yards to the FS7, 1ST DOWN UF, out-of-bounds (Matthew Thomas), clock 12:44. UF runs the RB on a wheel down the sideline to the boundary. Thomas is slow to see the back out and thus late getting over to it. Similar play that Louisville hit on FSU earlier in the season.
1-G at Fs07 3-4 Perine,L. rush up middle for no gain to the FS7 (Derrick Nnadi;Josh Sweat), clock 12:01. Zone Read, Appleby gives. UF tries to block Nnadi 1-on-1 and that is a bad idea. He plays the reach and then sheds to make the tackle. Good technique by Christmas here to hold the point vs the double team as Sweat squeezes and prevents the cutback.
2-G at Fs07 3-4 Appleby,A. MR pass incomplete to Lewis,C. (Ro'Derrick Hoskins), clock 11:33. UF trades pre-snap and sends a tight trips bunch to the field. FSU correctly adjusts and properly aligns. Really poor run fake from UF. FSU appears to have everyone covered up here in coverage and Appleby throws low to the TE who is leaking late into a route.
3-G at Fs07 4-1-6 Appleby,A. sideline pass complete to Powell,B. for 5 yards to the FS2 (Trey Marshall), clock 11:12. New 3rd down package from FSU with Nnadi and Walker with their hand down and Burns, Sweat and Becker standing up at the LOS. UF aligns in a 2x2 double stack and has a receiver open over the middle but Appleby doesn't see him. He checks down to the flat to the boundary where Marshall is in tight coverage.
4-G at Fs02 Timeout Florida State, clock 11:03.
4-G at Fs02 4-2-5 Appleby,A. crossing pass incomplete to Powell,B., QB hurry by Trey Marshall. UF runs another tight bunch to the field and FSU brings pressure from that side, blitzing Westbrook and Marshall. There's a receiver open in the back of the endzone but the pressure forces a bad throw. Lane has to be better in coverage here as he gets too wide and gives up the inside.

1-10 at Uf45 3-4 Scarlett,J. rush left for no gain to the UF45 (Ro'Derrick Hoskins), clock 11:58. Same halfback dive play but FSU has switched personnel and has Walker and Pugh aligned to the strong side of the formation. Nnadi is head up the center but slants to the playside A gap at the snap to occupy the guard and leave Hoskins unblocked to the ball. Nice fill and finish by Hoskins.
2-10 at Uf45 4-2-5 Appleby,A. crossing pass complete to Callaway,A. for 5 yards to the 50 yardline (Ro'Derrick Hoskins), clock 11:15. Callaway finds a soft spot in the Cover 2 zone to the boundary.

4-1 at Fs46 3-4 Scarlett,J. rush TL for 3 yards to the FS43, 1ST DOWN UF (Jacob Pugh), clock 09:55. UF trades the trips bunch to the field and runs a toss from gun. FSU adjusts very well here and Westbrook is there to make the play behind the line to gain but he can't finish the tackle.
1-10 at Fs43 3-4 Scarlett,J. rush over right end for 9 yards to the FS34, out-of-bounds (Ermon Lane), clock 09:15. Outside Zone to the field. Pugh sets the edge. Walker Walker splits the double team but gets too far upfield and Hoskins is too wide in his fit, creating a lane. This is also a rare time where Nnadi gets reached by the center. Taylor has a chance to make the tackle but can't finish. This really good running between the tackles by Scarlett, excellent vision and strength.
2-1 at Fs34 3-4 Scarlett,J. rush over left end for 7 yards to the FS27, 1ST DOWN UF (Levonta Taylor), clock 08:34. HB dive again from the same unbalanced formation. Pugh and Walker spill this to Taylor but he's unable to finish the tackle at the LOS.
1-10 at Fs27 4-2-5 Appleby,A. sideline pass incomplete to Powell,B., clock 08:12. UF fakes jet sweep to the slot and runs the RB on a wheel down the sideline vs Cover 3 from FSU. This probably is open if Appleby would show some patience but instead he quickly checks down to the flat with a throw that goes over the head of his target.
2-10 at Fs27 4-2-5 Perine,L. rush over right end for 6 yards to the FS21 (Ro'Derrick Hoskins;Ermon Lane), clock 07:50. UF motions from trips closed to ace pro-twins and runs power to the TE. Hoskins doesn't bump with the motion and thus is late getting to the RB from the backside. Burns is the playside DE here and needs to hold up better vs the TE as he is easily reached.
3-4 at Fs21 4-2-5 Appleby,A. ML pass incomplete to Callaway,A. (Marquez White), QB hurry by Trey Marshall, clock 07:23. FSU blitzes Westbrook and Marshall to the field with Cover 2 behind.

Injured player for UF is #73-Ivey. Walks off the field.
2-8 at Uf17 4-2-5 Appleby,A. crossing pass incomplete to Goolsby,D. (Demarcus Christmas), clock 03:37. This should've been a penalty on UF as the slot receiver covers up the TE who goes out in a route. Christmas sees the short drop from the QB and gets a hand up on the ball.
3-8 at Uf17 4-1-6 Appleby,A. sacked for loss of 8 yards to the UF9 (Brian Burns), clock 03:08. UF expecting blitz and only sends 3 out in a route.

Great recognition by Thomas here to spot the TE and run with him in coverage. Gotta think he gets beat on this if it's earlier in the season. Another terrible throw by Appleby doesn't give his receiver a chance.
2-10 at Fs27 4-2-5 Scarlett,J. rush over right end for 3 yards to the FS24 (DeMarcus Walker), clock 11:02. Counter off Inside Zone. UF tries to block Walker with the TE(Lewis). That's a big mismatch as Walker sheds to make the tackle.
3-7 at Fs24 4-2-5 Appleby,A. flag pass incomplete to Callaway,A., clock 10:31. UF has twins to the field and motions the outside receiver to a tight split. McFadden is trying to communicate the coverage to Taylor but I'm not sure they get it checked. Callaway gets separation from the loose coverage by McFadden on a corner route.

3-12 at Uf35 4-2-5 Appleby,A. deep pass incomplete (Marquez White), clock 02:47. UF max protects and runs play action on 3rd and long as they only send 3 out in a route. FSU has seven defenders dropped in Cover 2. Walker tries to beat the tackle outside and creates a lane for Appleby to leave the pocket. White vacates his zone to pressure the QB but is able to get his hands on the throw.
4-12 at Uf35 Townsend,J. punt 42 yards to the FS23, fair catch by Nyqwan Murray.
1-10 at Uf25 FLORIDA drive start at 12:51.
1-10 at Uf25 4-2-5 Appleby,A. crossing pass complete to Powell,B. for 8 yards to the UF33 (Matthew Thomas;Ro'Derrick Hoskins), clock 12:29. UF aligns in 2x2 and runs the outside receiver to the boundary on a quick in breaking route. FSU is in Cover 2 and the LBs are playing quite soft so Powell is able to find some room underneath.
2-2 at Uf33 4-2-5 Cronkrite,J. rush right for 10 yards to the UF43, 1ST DOWN UF (Ermon Lane), clock 12:08. Power out of ace pro twins. UF has found some success with this play because FSU is daring UF to run the ball late in the game. It's a 6 man box with Walker two gapping over the TE. Walker peaks inside the TE and Hoskins fits the same gap so there's no one to fit the outside until Lane comes up from his deep safety spot.
1-10 at Uf43 4-2-5 Cronkrite,J. rush over right guard for loss of 1 yard to the UF42 (Josh Sweat), clock 11:38. Same play. FSU has adjusted their look by aligning Sweat outside the TE and walking Lane up late into the box. It's a run blitz with Sweat slanting into the C gap, beating the TE and Thomas scraping over top. Cronkrite has nowhere to go.
2-11 at Uf42 4-2-5 Appleby,A. MR pass incomplete to Powell,B., clock 11:35. Same play we saw on first down of this drive. Appleby goes back to Powell on the quick in-route but the throw is inaccurate and Powell can't bring it in.
3-11 at Uf42 4-1-6 Appleby,A. sacked for loss of 3 yards to the UF39 (Brian Burns;Josh Sweat), clock 11:07. UF goes empty with trips to the boundary and two receivers to the trips run into each other on their routes. They also blow the pass protection as the RT lets Burns go free off the edge. This new 3rd down package from FSU really confused UF throughout the entire game.
4-14 at Uf39 Townsend,J. punt 43 yards to the FS18, Nyqwan Murray return -3 yards to the FS15, fumble forced by Thompson,Ch., fumble by Nyqwan Murray recovered by UF Harris,M. at FS12, Harris,M. for 12 yards to the FS0, TOUCHDOWN, clock 10:45. Maybe Murray should have fair caught the ball with the big lead but to me, this wasn't a very risky decision. More importantly, he just needs to hold onto the ball.
Drive: 5 plays, 14 yards, TOP 00:00
Pineiro,E. kick attempt good.
Florida State 24, Florida 13
Pineiro,E. kickoff 62 yards to the FS3, Kermit Whitfield return 36 yards to the FS39, out-of-bounds.

FSU LB's are able to get good depth in their drops but this is Appleby's best throw of the game. He steps up in the pocket and fits the ball into a small hole in the zone. McFadden seems to be in position to make a play on it if he leaves his feet.
1-10 at Uf31 4-2-5 Appleby,A. slant pass incomplete to Callaway,A. (Tarvarus McFadden), clock 07:42. McFadden is finally able to play the slant from press. He stays patient with the release, shuffles to stay in front and gets hands on the receiver. Callaway inexplicably fades on the route and allows McFadden to jump it but the ball goes through his hands.
2-10 at Uf31 4-2-5 Scarlett,J. rush up middle for 2 yards to the UF33 (Demarcus Christmas), clock 07:16. UF runs Zone Read to the TE. Walker slow plays the read and forces Appleby to give. FSU has a run blitz called with Christmas slanting into the A gap and Hoskins into the B gap. This messes up the blocking scheme for the UF OL as Hoskins gets penetration and stops the play at the LOS.
3-8 at Uf33 4-1-6 Appleby,A. sacked for loss of 11 yards to the UF22 (DeMarcus Walker), clock 06:40. FSU goes 2 man under vs a 2x2 look from UF. Amazing play by Walker here. He's lined up as a 3 tech and sides steps the guard before bull rushing through the center and RB on his way to the sack.
4-19 at Uf22 Townsend,J. punt 47 yards to the FS31, fair catch by Nyqwan Murray.

2-22 at Uf26 4-2-5 Appleby,A. sideline pass complete to Cleveland,T. for 5 yards to the UF31, out-of-bounds, clock 03:42. UF runs smash to the boundary vs Cover 2. McFadden wisely sinks to the corner route and gives up the short gain.
3-17 at Uf31 4-1-6 Appleby,A. sacked for loss of 5 yards to the UF26 (Derrick Nnadi), fumble by Appleby,A. recovered by FS DeMarcus Walker at UF26. UF goes 3x1 to the boundary and FSU is in 2 man under. Walker at 3 tech again beats the guard and gets the initial pressure that forces Appleby to step up. FSU appears to have tight coverage downfield and Nnadi is able to work back to sack the QB and force the fumble.
Drive: 3 plays, minus 12 yards, TOP 01:14
