Disappointment in Doak – Virginia Tech Postgame Hot Takes

Disappointing doesn’t seem like a strong enough word for the first game of the Willie Taggart era at Florida State, as the Seminoles could not get out of their own way all night, turning the ball over five times (plus a blocked punt) in a 24-3 defeat at the hands of Virginia Tech. What are the immediate takeaways from a game where FSU’s offense seemed awfully simple but not especially lethal?

    I saw a comment from Alec Eberle in which he stated that the VT defensive front changed their formation at the last second which left the offensive line miscuing on their blocks. I don’t understand why this was an issue. it sounds like something that can be taken advantage of pretty easily. I also did not see as many of these shifts. Why is this a problem with our OL?

    Not to be a couch coach and I know Taggart wants to keep things Simple But it almost seemed Elementary at Times.how many times can you call a swing pass out to the flat where you have a 160 Lb WR like DJ Mathews blocking for Mckitty and Patrick where it takes those guys time to get upfield?those Big Guys should be blocking for the shifty fast guy.Just thought there was too much east west play calling. D Coordinators are going to shut that down.

      “Elementary” is essentially what you’re going to get with “simple.” That doesn’t mean it’s a bad scheme, however.
