Florida State Football Film Review: Ole Miss Quarter 4

New, 3 comments

The only place to get every Florida State play broken down each week with the help of former players and coaches.

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 against Ole Miss? Which players played poorly? Where did the coaches do well, and when did they screw up?

We apologize for the delay as several of our analysts had strange work schedules and/or dental surgery. Here is the first quarter against Ole Miss. All quarters will eventually appear in the Florida State Film Review section of the website.

Share this on FB and tweet it using the buttons/icons on this page. If we don't get big numbers on these, they will stop. They take far too long to put together to have a small payoff.

Please ask any questions you may have in the comment section!

D-D Spot Form Play Analysis
1-10 at Om37 11 bunch gun Francois, D. pass complete to Rudolph, T. for 6 yards to the OM31 (Tony Bridges). Naked action by Francois with a solid seal by Izzo. Izzo needs to hold his block longer and be stronger with his outside hand to prevent the spin. Francois gets his shoulders around but is a little behind Rudolph not allowing for YAC.
2-4 at Om31 11 doubles under center Cook, D. rush for 4 yards to the OM27, 1ST DOWN FSU (D.J. Jones;D. Anderson). Izzo motions to a trips look. Cook runs IZ to the left where there's a big hole but 93 delivers a big punch to Bell and leverages that gap. Cook cuts back and picks up the first. Cook needs to put his head down and deliver a blow to the safety filling the alley.
1-10 at Om27 11 trips gun Francois, D. pass complete to Wilson, J. for 4 yards to the OM23 (Carlos Davis;Marquis Haynes). FSU works curl flat into the boundary with Cook and Bobo. Right side of the line is able to get hands down and Francois is on target to Bobo. Staying ahead of the chains.
2-6 at Om23 11 bunch gun Francois, D. pass incomplete to Whitfield, K., QB hurry by Breeland Speaks. Naked boot action again by the FSU offense. This time they work the smash concept and Francois overthrows Kermit. Ball appears to be a little flat instead of putting some air under it. If Kermit was an inch taller it's six. 3 guys end up blocking the down tackle and 10 puts a shot on DF.
Previous play is under review. Original call was a fumble.
previous play is overturned.
3-6 at Om23 11 doubles gun Francois, D. pass incomplete to Wilson, J. (John Youngblood). OM brings 5 and FSU does a poor job of picking it up. FSU rushed to get the snap off and look to have poorly communicated assignments. Rick Leonard gets beat by pure speed off the edge. Having Izzo to that side creates a longer set for Leonard against an elite edge rusher. Francois has to eat it.
4-6 at Om23 Aguayo, R. field goal attempt from 40 GOOD, clock 12:56.
Florida State 39, Ole Miss 28
Drive: 14 plays, 51 yards, TOP 04:58
Tyler, L. kickoff 65 yards to the OM0, touchback.
1-10 at Om25 OLE MISS drive start at 12:56.
1-10 at Om25 Empty Chad Kelly pass complete to Evan Engram for 42 yards to the FSU33, 1ST DOWN OM (Lewis, M.). Pre-snap FSU is showing zone. It becomes man to the three receiver side with underneath help by Matt Thomas with man free to the two receiver side. Walker gets good initial pressure with no help from his linemates. Engram makes a great catch with Lewis draped on him.
1-10 at Fsu33 Empty Chad Kelly pass complete to Q. Adeboyejo for 10 yards to the FSU23, 1ST DOWN OM (Marshall, T.;Hoskins, R.). Nascar tempo for OM. OM flips the formation and runs double slants coming from the boundary. Hoskins needs to leverage the twins better to assist on the slant. Easy pitch and catch for Kelly. DL needs to get their hands up.
1-10 at Fsu23 Empty Chad Kelly pass complete to Van Jefferson for 3 yards to the FSU20 (Lewis, M.). OM stays in nascar. FSU appears to be in off man. OM runs some rub routes and Lewis is late getting to the arrow. Josh Sweat gives up after his first move.
2-7 at Fsu20 Empty Chad Kelly pass complete to Van Jefferson for 20 yards to the FSU0, 1ST DOWN OM, TOUCHDOWN, clock 12:09, PENALTY FSU holding declined. Appears to be man free from FSU and Kelly just makes a perfect throw to Jefferson. Appears that Jefferson got away with some OPI. Marshall against a receiver like Jefferson is a touch matchup. Marshall is flatfooted and allows Jefferson to break cushion to quickly which puts him out of position.
Chad Kelly pass attempt failed.
Florida State 39, Ole Miss 34
Drive: 4 plays, 75 yards, TOP 00:56
Nathan Noble kickoff 64 yards to the FSU1, Whitfield, K. return 46 yards to the FSU47 (Zedrick Woods).
1-10 at Fsu47 FLORIDA STATE drive start at 12:00.
1-10 at Fsu47 PENALTY FSU false start 5 yards to the FSU42.
1-15 at Fsu42 11 Nasty under center Francois, D. pass incomplete to Wilson, J.. PA by Francois that keeps the backers honest. Working smash to the boundary and Francois just overthrows Bobo. Tight window for the ball and Francois is just a little high.
2-15 at Fsu42 12 trips under center Francois, D. rush for no gain to the FSU42 (John Youngblood;Terry Caldwell). Motion by the outside reciever to begin the play. OM brings 5 including immediate edge pressure and spies Francois. Sometimes a good blitz throws a play off and this is an example of this. Dalvin is out of position to pick up the edge pressure and it forces DF to adjust. DF keeps eyes down the field and it becomes too late for him to take off and run. The spy eliminates the running angle and makes a good play on DF. Post/Dig comes open late but DF decides to eat the ball.
3-15 at Fsu42 Timeout Florida State, clock 11:06.
3-15 at Fsu42 Empty Francois, D. pass complete to Rudolph, T. for 27 yards to the OM31, 1ST DOWN FSU (Zedrick Woods). DF is tough! FSU runs smash on one side with 2 Verts and a drag on the other. Rudolph sits down underneath the over top coverage and the drag forces the underneath coverage to step up. Francois delivers the ball under duress. Well executed play.
1-10 at Om31 21 Cook, D. rush for no gain to the OM31 (Marquis Haynes). Ole Miss has 9 guys in the box. This looks like it should be Inside Zone but Kelly and Johnson base block their guys instead of zone stepping. Johnson allows penetration causing Cook to bounce where he has nowhere to go because Izzo also misses his block.
2-10 at Om31 10 trips gun Francois, D. pass incomplete to Murray, N., QB hurry by Issac Gross. FSU motions the outside WR tight and runs a flood concept to the field with Francois rolling out. Kelly is unable to step to his right and allows a free runner through the backside A gap. Ole Miss takes away Francois' first read and he has no time to move to his second read because of the pressure. Wisely throws the ball away.
3-10 at Om31 10 gun Francois, D. pass complete to Murray, N. for 4 yards to the OM27, out-of-bounds (A.J. Moore;Jaylon Jones). PA screen off of Power. This is smart by Francois to make a short and safe throw and set up a shorter FG to go up two scores in the 4th.
4-6 at Om27 Aguayo, R. field goal attempt from 44 GOOD, clock 09:16.
Florida State 42, Ole Miss 34
Drive: 7 plays, 26 yards, TOP 02:44
Tyler, L. kickoff 65 yards to the OM0, touchback.
1-10 at Om25 OLE MISS drive start at 09:16.
1-10 at Om25 4-2-5 Chad Kelly pass complete to Evan Engram for 6 yards to the OM31, out-of-bounds (Marshall, T.). This is a play we saw from Ole Miss earlier in the game. Motion Engram away from the passing strength and get him matched up vs Hoskins in the flat. Marshall does a nice job coming down and minimizing the gain.
2-4 at Om31 4-2-5 Chad Kelly pass incomplete to Q. Adeboyejo. FSU gets lucky here as they have another bust in the secondary. Marshall is playing cover 4 while McFadden thinks it's a cover 2 call so the #1 WR runs free behind McFadden. Kelly misses the throw.
3-4 at Om31 4-1-6 Chad Kelly sacked for loss of 7 yards to the OM24 (Walker, D.;Pugh, J.). Beuatiful stunt by FSU up front. They slant Sweat and Nnadi to the boundary a loop Pugh through the A gap to collapse the pocket on Kelly.
4-11 at Om24 Gary Wunderlich punt 39 yards to the FSU37, fair catch by Wilson, J..
Drive: 3 plays, minus 1 yards, TOP 01:00
1-10 at Fsu37 FLORIDA STATE drive start at 08:16.
1-10 at Fsu37 11 gun Cook, D. rush for 4 yards to the FSU41 (Issac Gross). Split Zone from FSU. The left side of the OL has this blocked up well but Bell lunges on his reach and falls on his face. Leonard is unable to maintain his block on the end so Izzo has to help as he crosses the formation. Decent gain consdiering the missed blocks here.
2-6 at Fsu41 11 gun Francois, D. pass complete to Whitfield, K. for 14 yards to the OM45, 1ST DOWN FSU (M. Hartsfield). FSU motions Rudolph to a tight split stack and gets off coverage on Whitfield. 3 step drop from Francois and he delivers and accurate ball to Whitfield on the post.
1-10 at Om45 11 gun Francois, D. pass complete to Wilson, J. for 13 yards to the OM32, 1ST DOWN FSU (Tony Bridges). PA roll out to the boundary. Great route by Wilson as he breaks the cushion of the off corner, getting him to open up before breaking down on the comeback. Great throw by Francois to keep the ball high while rolling to his left.
1-10 at Om32 11 gun Francois, D. pass complete to Whitfield, K. for 10 yards to the OM22, 1ST DOWN FSU, out-of-bounds (M. Hartsfield). RPO from FSU. Split Zone run call with a bubble in the flat. Francois reads the overhang defender, pulls the ball and delivers a perfect throw to Whitfield. Excellent cut by Rudolph on the corner allows Whitfield to pick up a few extra yards.
1-10 at Om22 11 gun Francois, D. pass complete to Whitfield, K. for 5 yards to the OM17 (M. Hartsfield). Jet sweep to the boundary. Francois times up the motion here much better than earlier in the game and FSU gets a hat on a hat in the blocking scheme. The backside safety comes across the field to make the tackle here.
2-5 at Om17 11 gun Cook, D. rush for 4 yards to the OM13 (DeMarquis Gates). Zone Read from FSU as Ole Miss puts 6 guys on the line of scrimmage. Good give read from Francois. Izzo needs to continue to climb to the next level here to get the backer who is unaccounted for.
3-1 at Om13 11 gun Cook, D. rush for no gain to the OM13 (A.J. Moore). Zone Read again and this time Francois makes the wrong read. EOL crashes down and if Francois pulls he probably scores.
4-1 at Om13 Aguayo, R. field goal attempt from 30 GOOD, clock 04:53.
Florida State 45, Ole Miss 34
Drive: 8 plays, 50 yards, TOP 03:23
Tyler, L. kickoff 65 yards to the OM0, touchback.
1-10 at Om25 OLE MISS drive start at 04:53.
1-10 at Om25 4-1-6 Chad Kelly sacked for loss of 10 yards to the OM15 (Walker, D.). Empty. FSU in Cover 1 robber here and they take away the quick throw to the boundary that Kelly is looking for initially. This allows time for Walker to defeat the RG and sack Kelly.
2-20 at Om15 4-1-6 Chad Kelly pass incomplete to Q. Adeboyejo, PENALTY FSU pass interference (Marshall, T.) 15 yards to the OM30, 1ST DOWN OM, NO PLAY. Empty again and FSU runs the same Cover 1 coverage. Ole Miss sends the #2 WR to the boundary on a vertical vs off coverage from Marshall. Marshall gets a little too handsy as he fights to stay in phase. Needs to be a little more patient here and play through the hands as the ball arrives.
1-10 at Om30 4-1-6 Chad Kelly pass incomplete to DaMarkus Lodge (McFadden, T.). Cover 1 again with FSU using Thomas and James as robber defenders in underneath coverage. McFadden does an excellent job using his size to disrupt the WR on the vertical and then turn and finds the ball to break it up.
2-10 at Om30 4-1-6 Chad Kelly pass complete to Akeem Judd for no gain to the OM30 (Thomas, M.). 2 high look from FSU. Thomas again diagnoses the RB screen and has great speed to avoid the OL and make the play.
3-10 at Om30 4-1-6 Chad Kelly pass incomplete to D.K. Metcalf. Cover 1 from FSU with Kelly looking to hit the single WR on a stop route at the sticks. White might of got away with a hold at the break of the route here but it's not called as the ball sails 10 feet above the head of the WR.
4-10 at Om30 Timeout Florida State, clock 03:32.
4-10 at Om30 PENALTY OM false start (Javon Patterson) 5 yards to the OM25.
4-15 at Om25 4-1-6 Chad Kelly pass complete to D. Stringfellow for 17 yards to the OM42, 1ST DOWN OM. Ole Miss again working the back shoulder fade to the single receiver. White is in tight coverage here but anticipates the back shoulder too early. He's got to be a little smarter here to realize down and distance and know that throw is coming past the sticks.
Previous play is under review. Call on the field was a good catch.
Call on the field stands.
1-10 at Om42 4-1-6 Akeem Judd rush for 3 yards to the OM45 (James, D.). FSU walks James up to the line of scrimmage and Ole Miss cracks down on him and runs a toss to the outside. Thomas' speed and athleticism on full display here. Runs down the RB in the open field and brings him down for a short gain. Impressive stuff.
2-7 at Om45 4-1-6 Chad Kelly sacked for loss of 9 yards to the OM36 (Walker, D.). Cover 1 robber. Kelly looks to the backside receiver but McFadden is in tight coverage. Walker again is lined up as the 3 tech and whips the guard to sack Kelly.
3-16 at Om36 4-1-6 Chad Kelly pass intercepted by McFadden, T. at the FSU32, McFadden, T. return 0 yards to the FSU32 (DaMarkus Lodge). Fade to the single WR with McFadden locked up in press man. Beautiful coverage to stay on top of the vertical, get his hand on the inside hip and turn and find the ball. McFadden caps off an excellent second half with the game-clenching INT.
Drive: 8 plays, 11 yards, TOP 02:32
1-10 at Fsu32 FLORIDA STATE drive start at 02:21.
1-10 at Fsu32 22 Cook, D. rush for 18 yards to the 50 yardline, 1ST DOWN FSU (Zedrick Woods). Power to the boundary. Looks like Ole Miss was expecting Inside Zone the other way as they slant away from the power, allowing the playside OL to easily wash them down and create a big hole. Cook wisely slides at the end of the run to keep the clock moving.
1-10 at Fsu50 22 Patrick, J. rush for 2 yards to the OM48 (Terry Caldwell;Marquis Haynes). Same play. Playside DE spins off the downblock from Izzo and hits Patrick at the LOS. Izzo's got to take a better angle and get his hands on the defender here.
2-8 at Om48 22 Patrick, J. rush for 1 yard to the OM47 (John Youngblood). Stretch play. Ole Miss covers everyone up to the playside so FSU has no one for the playside backer. Smart by Patrick to take what he can get here and stay in bounds.
3-7 at Om47 Timeout Ole Miss, clock 00:59.
3-7 at Om47 22 Francois, D. rush for 20 yards to the OM27, 1ST DOWN FSU. Beautiful call from Fisher to ice the game. Francois fakes to Cook and boots with a pulling guard leading the way. Stays in bounds to keep the clock moving and allow FSU to get in victory formation.
1-10 at Om27 TEAM rush for loss of 2 yards to the OM29.
2-12 at Om29 End of game, clock 00:00.
Drive: 5 plays, 39 yards, TOP 02:21
