QB – D
QB seemed to panic in the pocket, and only wanted to make safe throws. Didn't test UF's secondary for majority of the game.
Preston Parker played hard all game & ran hard when he had opportunities. He refused to go down and he protected the ball. Every other back didn't show up.
WR – B
They caught majority of the balls that were thrown to them. Not sure if it's the scheme or them on why they were not getting more separation.
OL – C-
Need to pick up blitzes better. Also need to get stronger in the run game.
DL – Incomplete
DL didn't finish assignments. Never kept up pursuit on Tebow. And couldn't locate the ball carrier all night.
LB – D
The LB's missed numerous assignments & gap responsibilities. Also didn't locate the ball carrier very well.
DB – C-
Anytime your secondary leads your defense in tackles there's a problem. FSU got burnt when they made all out blitzes and didn't get to the QB. Also didn't use good technique by letting WR's break their cushions too quickly and get behind them on deep TD passes.
