DAG 29,707 Posted December 5, 2017 Share Posted December 5, 2017 Don't know if you guys know this, but the season isn't over just yet. Here are some highlights from UCF recent game. Can't seem to find too many videos solely based on UCF. Their defense has some speed, but they are undersized and susceptible to giving up the big play A LOT. They do their best to cause turnovers though and seem more bend don't break in philosophy. JS should have a field them with them. JS should have a field day. Riley Ferguson torched them for a tune of 471 yards on 4 TD passes and he had one main target, Anthony Miller and UCF still couldn't stop him. I expect them to play quite a bit of zone, doing their best to keep everything in front of them. I am sure they will be keying on our quick hitters to Davis. With that being said, there secondary is not nearly as physical as the teams we face. They miss a lot of tackles. NCM should feel like Larry Allen (Shout out to the cowboys) on the exterior. For example..look at the video underneath. (beginning of the video to about 35 seconds). Hope the coaching staff has something up their sleeves... Now, they have a very prolific offense. Mackenzie Miller is pretty damn accurate and has underrated speed. He lacks arm strength, so don't be expecting Baker Mayfield tosses on the run, but he makes up for it with his ability to get the ball out quick. They tend to run a lot of intermediate routes. Their goal is to get to the outside more than not and they have the speed to do it. Basic principles of RPO apply. Defensive ends cannot lose leverage and just crash down. Miller can run and will run need be. Defense needs to trust their technique and gameplan, not just their athletic ability. I will say their intermediate routes scare me a bit, as our guys are physical in the secondary, but tend to get lost in space. Carlton Davis is very physical, but he is a continuous culprit in this regard. If our front seven does what it does, we should be in pretty good hands.I do not foresee them running the ball on us unless they are able to get yards on 1st down through the air. If that is the case, they will want to run tempo and that is when the defense starts to falter a bit. WE MUST REMAIN AHEAD OF THE CHAINS ON BOTH SIDES OF THE BALL. This is a very beatable team. However, they will come out with passion off the charts for their coach and for their pride. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
