Louisville misplaced the lead within the second quarter however I don’t assume that they performed poorly in any respect. The offense had a three-and-out at a poor time however I believe that either side of the ball simply fell sufferer to some higher performs from Wake Forest. This staff additionally will get credit score for not flinching as the sport began to show. This might have been a recreation the place they pressed and turned the ball over or gave up a giant play. They strapped in and saved this to a manageable scenario.

In my #W2W4 submit final week, I requested Scott Satterfield to let all of it hang around. He did simply that with this nice trick play to get Marshon Ford open down the sideline. I significantly loved this play as a result of they didn’t actually do something to set it up. That is their regular exterior zone stretch look with Braden Smith coming round for a reverse. The play works nicely and as I posted within the first quarter submit, I believe Malik was seeking to simply put the ball on guys to verify he didn’t overthrow or underthrow it to the purpose that they couldn’t catch it.

I actually love how Marshon Ford sells this by conserving his momentum whereas faking the block. He crops his foot and takes off down the sector. The design of the play helps him get open by working the deep submit to filter the sideline and it’s large open.

The main focus of this play is the flag which I believed was honest however there’s a extra vital facet, in my view. Kei’Trel Clark will get beat right here as he sits on the route in search of A.T. Perry to run a cease route or one other kind of intermediate route. Perry runs a go route and Clark has to chase. He takes the flag as a result of the cross was underthrown.

Now for the vital half. The cross was overthrown as a result of UofL brings an additional rusher and he hits Sam Hartman sq. within the ribs. Should you return to the FSU recreation, they obtained residence with a few of their pressures however they had been hitting the quarterback only a break up second too late. This (and loads of different throws on this recreation) is part of how they’ve been capable of keep away from huge performs. Perry is working free if Hartman doesn’t get hit right here.

This was a play that I believe appeared very unhealthy on the time however it’s rather more comprehensible after it once more. UofL runs Marshon Ford in movement which provides Malik an indicator of the protection. The linebacker runs with him which suggests they’re in man protection. Wake is displaying a blitz with just one defender to the working again’s aspect that would choose him up in protection.

Malik will get the snap and it seems that when he sees the surface linebacker speeding, he makes the choice to throw the display to the working again. That is the suitable choice as a result of there isn’t a defender on that aspect of the sector that picks him up. Nonetheless, Wake’s excellent linebacker Ryan Smenda fakes his blitz and runs down the play. Generally the opposite staff calls a greater play.

Yaya Diaby obtained robbed of a strip sack right here as you possibly can see that Sam Hartman begins shedding the ball as quickly as he’s hit. However no matter. It is a actually nice four-man rush from Louisville with three gamers getting residence. Louisville additionally does a great job once more of blending up the protection with man protection, in addition to others, dropping into passing lanes. Yasir Abdullah drops into beneath protection to the quick aspect of the sector whereas one of many inside linebackers drops into zone on the bottom of the play.

That is an space they simply have to enhance on. That is “drop eight” protection which is supposed to maintain issues in entrance of you and on this particular occasion, it’s meant to maintain the ball in entrance of the primary down line. You may see that as quickly because the digital camera pans to the suitable, each UoL defender is behind the yellow line. It’s important to have guys both proper on the hip of the receiver right here or in entrance of them to power a more durable throw.

Momo Sanogo and Monty Montgomery aren’t one of the best in protection and I believe it is going to be fascinating to see if they give the impression of being to vary some personnel in these conditions once they need to play this protection in order that they’ll get some guys on the sector who could also be higher in protection.

I’ll say it once more that I actually thought Malik appeared good on Saturday and it was partially as a result of Scott Satterfield known as performs like this. They get into a great distance-to-go scenario and as an alternative of working the ball like they’re recognized to do, they name this straightforward out route for Ahmari Huggins-Bruce and it offers Malik a secure throw that may be a layup each time.

It seems like they’ve settled right into a passing assault that appears like what I anticipated the 2021 passing recreation to seem like. Extra cease routes and fast outs. A deal with straightforward throws that may be an extension of your working recreation. As an alternative of working the ball to open the passing recreation, it feels reversed.

Lance Taylor known as out this play within the press convention this week and I discovered it very fascinating that he did so. It is a excellent play by Wake’s high nook however Taylor talked about Tyler Hudson needing to create separation and he’s not incorrect. UofL goes to see some top-flight corners for the remainder of the 12 months and the receivers have to have the ability to get open on these lengthy yardage performs the place everybody is aware of you’re attempting to get to the sticks. Is it a greater route? A extra bodily route? The reply is someplace and I believe Taylor has to search out it. The protection will proceed to be tight like this with no deep menace.

Bryan Brown dialed up so many several types of pressures that it was onerous to maintain up with every thing. One factor that was a relentless was Wake’s working backs being tasked with selecting up the rusher from the large aspect. Right here, Tre Clark comes on a “nook cat” out of the bunch look from Wake and he simply beats the again to the spot and bends round to get to Hartman.

As typical, there are such a lot of different issues to search for on this play. UofL solely rushes 4 guys on this play that ends in a sack. Clark is coming off of the slot however two different gamers drop into protection. Yasir Abdullah takes the receiver in movement and picks him up on the snap. However Dez Inform can be dropping into a brief zone with Momo changing him. That is just like the play that led to Jalen Alderman’s pick-six in opposition to UCF final 12 months. A totally totally different look than we noticed for many of the recreation.

This was the longest play of the sport for Wake Forest however it was a really good play for Louisville, in context. The Playing cards have been giving up too many huge performs this 12 months and a few of them have simply been guys getting beat in single protection. Not solely will we see Quincey Riley play tight protection right here and play the soccer however we additionally see Josh Minkins proper there in assist.

Louisville rushes 5 guys right here. They’ve a spy/robber dropped down into the field after the snap. But, they nonetheless have a nook proper the place he must be to make a play on the ball 35+ yards down the sector with a security closing in on the ball. That is how they’ve improved with stopping the massive performs.
