Florida State football film review: Gators 3rd quarter

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.

D-D At Form Play Analysis
Aguayo, R. kickoff 63 yards to the UF2, Debose,A. return 40 yards to the UF42, out-of-bounds (Aguayo, R.). Appears Ramsey gets pushed out of his lane inside, Debose has room up sideline, where Haggins has been driven out of bounds. Not great, Bob.
1-10 at Uf42 FLORIDA drive start at 14:55.
1-10 at Uf42 Harris,T. at QB for Florida.
1-10 at Uf42 425 Taylor,Kel. rush over right guard for 6 yards to the UF48 (Edwards, M.;Northrup, R.), clock 14:38. Zone right, nowhere to go so Kelvin cuts back towards Edwards and Northrup in the hole. Does a good job falling forward to get 3-4 extra yards. Would like to stop this better
2-4 at Uf48 425 Taylor,Kel. rush over right guard for loss of 1 yard to the UF47 (Mitchell, D.;Smith, Terr.), clock 14:06. Power left, Mitchell does a great job swimming past his blocker and meeting Kelvin in the backfield. Terrance Smith helps finish it off right at the LOS.
3-5 at Uf47 416 Harris,T. sideline pass complete to Robinson,D. for 9 yards to the FS44, 1ST DOWN UF (Williams, P.J.), clock 13:37. Cover 1 five man pressure from FSU, with Walker green dogging the back, Treon does a good job of getting the hitch off quickly to Robinson. PJ's in position to make a play but can't get a hand on the ball. Pressure gets home reasonably quickly but ball gets out quicker. Casher loops inside on a stunt and hits Treon hard. This is a dime rush package with six players on LOS. Pittman was also open underneath on a rub.
1-10 at Fs44 425 Harris,T. rush over right tackle for 11 yards to the FS33, 1ST DOWN UF (Andrews, N.), clock 13:07. Walker crashes by design on this play, and Terrance Smith scrapes outside. PJ blitzes from outside, well disguised, but can't get around the TE coming across the formation. 24 or 26 have to beat their blocks here, because UF really didn't have numbers here if 24 fills quicker. Good play design, slow fill from 24.
1-10 at Fs33 425 Taylor,Kel. rush right for 1 yard to the FS32 (Northrup, R.), clock 12:38. Wide zone right, and there really just wasn't a darn place for Kelvin to go. Both 90/11 had their blocks beaten enough to force him to cut back into Northrup, who finishes it off. Great penetration.
2-9 at Fs32 425 Harris,T. flag pass complete to Pittman,L. for 16 yards to the FS16, 1ST DOWN UF, clock 12:12. Pittman gets a good position on Ramsey on the slant. Treon throws it a bit behind him, but he's able to haul it in. Good receiver beats man coverage.
1-10 at Fs16 425 Taylor,Kel. rush over right guard for 3 yards to the FS13 (Walker, D.), clock 11:43. Really, really hard to tell, but I don't think Mitchell was offsides here. Great snap anticipation, somehow Mitchell isn't able to wrap up Kelvin in the backfield. Unblocked Walker does a great job finishing the play, but Kelvin falls forward for a couple extra yards. Really good play from Kelvin to avoid Mitchell in the backfield
Injured player for Florida is #63-Thurman. Assisted off the field.
2-7 at Fs13 425 Taylor,Kel. rush left for 3 yards to the FS10 (Hunter, T.), PENALTY UF holding (Moore,T.) 10 yards to the FS20, clock 11:05. Noles bring boundary pressure from right to back side of wide zone to field. Williams blitzes, well disguised again. Walker crashes, and it's a really good play from Kelvin to make him miss. Moore's hold keeps this from being a TFL, and is rightfully brought back. The hold itself definitely impacted the play, and it's good that this isn't getting let go.
2-14 at Fs20 2nd and 14.
2-14 at Fs20 425 Harris,T. MR pass complete to Dunbar,Q. for 6 yards to the FS14 (Williams, P.J.), clock 10:38. Can't see what was going on downfield, but appears Treon hits Dunbar underneath on a smash route. Good, quick throw and catch.
3-8 at Fs14 416 Harris,T. middle pass incomplete to Pittman,L. (Ramsey, J.), clock 10:20. Same dime pressure package as earlier third down. This one's a cover 0 blitz, six men pressure into an empty set. Numbers win, Ramsey gets his hands up and bats the ball down. 6 > 5, and 8 >>>>
4-8 at Fs14 Hardin,A. field goal attempt from 32 GOOD, clock 10:16.
Florida State 21, Florida 19
Drive: 11 plays, 44 yards, TOP 04:49 Really good defense on this drive overall. Only one play over 10 yards and it's a well run slant. Holding them to a field goal here is a very good way to start the half.
Hardin,A. kickoff 65 yards to the FS0, Whitfield, K. return 23 yards to the FS23 (Showers,V.). Marshall just isn't able to sustain a block on a RB. NEed to block these up better, and Jimbo has said as much.
1-10 at Fs23 FLORIDA STATE drive start at 10:06.
1-10 at Fs23 11 singleback Cook, D. rush over left guard for 2 yards to the FS25 (Bullard,J.), clock 09:56. Wide zone left. This play had some room to go. While Erving allowing Cummings to run free isn't good, the issue here is that Hart does a poor job of taking over the block of Bullard from Jackson, who is trying to get to second level. If they make the combo block and Hart can hold on, Cook's out the gate.
2-8 at Fs25 11 gun Winston, J. sideline pass incomplete to Cook, D., clock 09:28. Curl flat, Winston looks middle, double clutches and looks back and then throws a bad pass to Cook on the flat. Uncatchable throw.
3-8 at Fs25 11 gun Winston, J. rush QX for 9 yards to the FS34 (Neal,K.;Cummings,D.), PENALTY FS holding (Erving, C.) 10 yards to the FS15, NO PLAY, clock 09:18. Fowler lines up at nose, and Erving holds him coming in. Bullard also gets past a poor effort from 51, forcing Winston to run out left to get first down. This was a really BS hold call - Fowler trips over Matias leg after being punched out that way by Erving. Can't really blame the ref, though - hard to see that sort of detail live, and you see nose go down like that with blocker reaching, you'll call it a hold.
3-18 at Fs15 11 singleback Cook, D. rush left for 9 yards to the FS24 (Fowler,D.), clock 08:31. Wide zone left. Cook breaks two tackles, Jimbo gets Beatty some room to punt.
4-9 at Fs24 Beatty, C. punt 32 yards to the UF44, fair catch by Debose,A.. This was a bad punt. Beatty is clearly spooked.
Drive: 3 plays, 1 yards, TOP 01:54 Missed a block and got behind the chains, Jameis missed a throw, incorrect hold call and you just get too far behind the chains.
1-10 at Uf44 FLORIDA drive start at 08:12.
1-10 at Uf44 425 Harris,T. deep out pass incomplete to Powell,B. (Ramsey, J.). 4 man contain/pressure. Powell runs a slant, Ramsey jumps it and makes an insane athletic play, fully parallel to ground at full extension, and bats the ball down. Nearly catches it. Wow. Jalen is that dude. Incredible athlete and football player.
Official Review: Call on the field is an interception.
Official Review: Call is overturned. Incomplete Pass. Correct call
2-10 at Uf44 425 Jones,M. rush over right guard for 1 yard to the UF45 (Goldman, E.), clock 07:45. Inside zone, Ramsey blitzes from field. Noles do a great job of filling gaps, Goldman gets off his block and makes the play at the LOS. Excellent defense against the run
3-9 at Uf45 416 Harris,T. rush QX for 14 yards to the FS41, 1ST DOWN UF, out-of-bounds, clock 07:22. Walker gets caught on his wrong foot and knocked over, giving Treon a lane. Poor leverage happens. Contain lost, mobile QB makes smart play against c2 man under.
1-10 at Fs41 425 Harris,T. rush for loss of 3 yards to the FS44, fumble by Harris,T., clock 06:43. Read option, Treon tries to read 21 out of the play, but fumbles the ball post mesh after hitting the back with it unintentionally. Casher sat on it well, and Treon would have had to make a nice play to get by him - he wasn't crashing as part of scrape xchange here
2-13 at Fs44 425 Harris,T. deep out pass incomplete to Robinson,D., clock 06:24. Harris totally misses wide open Robinson on the comeback. This may have had to do with a slippery part of the field - both Robinson and Williams slip on this play, with PJ going down completely. Doak seemed to be dry, not sure what this was.
3-13 at Fs44 416 Harris,T. rush QX for 16 yards to the FS28, out-of-bounds, PENALTY UF holding (Moore,T.) 10 yards to the UF46, NO PLAY, clock 06:15. Four man pressure, lane opened up for Treon because Edwards got absolutely mugged by Tyler Moore. You could almost argue the hold on Mitchell was worse - he's kept from pursuit entirely.
3-23 at Uf46 416 Jones,M. rush right for 1 yard to the UF47 (Mitchell, D.), clock 05:40. Long down, Gators just run it. Mitchell does a good job getting off his block and making the play.
4-22 at Uf47 Christy,K. punt 53 yards to the FS0, touchback.
Drive: 6 plays, 3 yards, TOP 03:01 Phenomenal drive on defense. Only successful play is mobile QB getting his against man when contain got lost.
1-10 at Fs20 FLORIDA STATE drive start at 05:11.
1-10 at Fs20 11 singleback Winston, J. flag pass incomplete to Rudolph, T. (Jones,M.), clock 05:05. Play action, Winston throws to Rudolph on corner. People I watched this with thought it was horrible live, I said "wait til you see replay, good decision". Poole makes an excellent play to get a hand on this ball. Really good play from him. Great throw and decision from Winston - if 24 doesn't make that play, we're talking about how awesome this throw and catch is. This is just players making plays.
2-10 at Fs20 21 tight Cook, D. rush right for 49 yards to the UF31, out-of-bounds (Taylor,M.), PENALTY FS holding (Stevenson, F.) 10 yards to the FS10, NO PLAY, clock 04:54. Wide zone left, amazing cutback right by Dalvin, who makes three defenders miss on the sideline to make a really long run. This gets called back on a hold by Stevenson. This is ticky tacky, and something they called inconsistently all night. But they'll call it when you make a long run. Maddeningly bad officiating out of the ACC's worst crew.
2-20 at Fs10 11 gun Winston, J. screen pass complete to Cook, D. for 30 yards to the FS40, 1ST DOWN FS, out-of-bounds (Gorman,J.), PENALTY UF personal foul (Gorman,J.) 15 yards to the UF45, 1ST DOWN FS, clock 04:21. Dalvin Cook is a special player. Winston checks down to him on a flat route, breaks two tackles and gets a first down. This kid is better than anyone we've had at FSU in a long time. Then dumb Muschamp team does dumb Muschamp things. Gorman gives Noles an extra 15 yards.
1-10 at Uf45 1st and 10.
1-10 at Uf45 11 singleback Pender, M. rush right for loss of 4 yards to the UF49 (Maye,M.), clock 03:45. Wide zone right to field, UF does a good job filling and there's really just nowhere to go. Pender gets SMASHED by Cummings and Tabor well after he was down and whistle came. Unbelievable that refs don't call anything here. Not calling PF's on successive plays is an ideal way to lose control. This is the worst crew the ACC has, and it isn't close. Just pure garbage.
2-14 at Uf49 10 gun Winston, J. rush QX for 3 yards to the UF46 (Bullard,J.), clock 03:09. This was a called tunnel screen, but Winston aborted it despite Hargreaves not having positioning on Rashad. Worst case Rashad was tackled at LOS. Instead he tucks it, runs, and exposes himself to another hard hit.
3-11 at Uf46 10 gun Winston, J. deep pass intercepted by Poole,B. at the UF40, Poole,B. return 27 yards to the FS33. Poole makes a phenomenal play on this ball. Poole does his best NCAA 2013 linebacker jump up, tips the ball and gets it himself. Fortunate bounce off his hand. Ball is well thrown, and can't fault Jameis for throwing it at all. He'd have had a tight window, but was slowing up Rudolph, who wouldn't have taken a big hit with this ball placement. Great play from Poole.
Drive: 5 plays, 34 yards, TOP 02:35 ACC refs running a clown show. That about sums up this drive.
1-10 at Fs33 FLORIDA drive start at 02:36.
1-10 at Fs33 425 Taylor,Kel. rush up middle for 3 yards to the FS30 (Smith, Terr.), clock 02:23. Jet action to boundary, inside zone to field. 24 does a good job shedding his block and stopping Kelvin.
2-7 at Fs30 425 Robinson,D. rush left for 3 yards to the FS27, out-of-bounds, PENALTY UF holding (Pittman,L.) 10 yards to the FS37, PENALTY UF personal foul (Pittman,L.) 15 yards to the UF48. Gators have trips to field, run a bubble. Looks like they're looking for a double pass to the #1, but #1 doesn't look like he's looking for a pass, just clearing out space. Pittman in #2 spot gets a ticky tacky holding call, and compounds it by doing more Muschamp things and mouthing off to a ref. Really stupid. Noles will take it. Kelvin Taylor gets into his face.
Previous play was a lateral to 11.
2-29 at Uf48 2nd and 29.
2-29 at Uf48 425 Harris,T. rush for 9 yards to the FS43. Not sure why Noles are in nickel. Thomas on green dog beats his guy but barely misses Treon, who scampers past a clearly hobbled Terrance Smith. 24 just isn't healthy. Poor guy.
3-20 at Fs43 416 Harris,T. deep pass complete to Robinson,D. for 9 yards to the FS34, clock 00:15. 5 man pressure with Thomas blitzing. Forces a throw on a crosser to Robinson, who has nowhere to go. Not a great throw.
4-11 at Fs34 Hardin,A. field goal attempt from 52 MISSED - wide right, spot at FS35, clock 00:08. Ramsey is a magician. Flying over. Muschamp bitching for no reason. Ramsey is just absurdly athletic. Muschamp wants a call for a legal play. So. Good luck with that.
Drive: 5 plays, minus 1 yards, TOP 02:28 Great drive, and Florida seems to be Muschamping hard on this one.
1-10 at Fs35 FLORIDA STATE drive start at 00:08.
1-10 at Fs35 21 tight Cook, D. rush up middle for 17 yards to the UF48, 1ST DOWN FS (Gorman,J.), clock 00:01. Inside zone left with counter backfield action, and Cook doesn't have anyone to worry about until he's fifteen yards downfield. Fantastic blocking from the entire offense.
Drive: 1 plays, 17 yards, TOP 03:20
Florida State 21, Florida 19 Noles' D's taking over this game - Dalvin and Defense. Winston isn't yet playing that poorly - just a couple great defensive plays keeping them from moving ball through the air. I doubt he'd get "-" grade on the INT or the corner.
