Experience In Norvell System
Tate Rodemaker has the same amount of time in Mike Norvell’s system as Jordan Travis. Rodemaker playing Saturday won’t be a case of a head coach and offensive coordinator having to pair down the playbook.
I’m sure they will use concepts Rodemaker has the most comfort with in attacking where they expect the Florida defense to be vulnerable.
However, the benefit of not having a paired down playbook is they can have different alternatives if something isn’t working. Whereas, like we saw with Miami’s approach against FSU.
It was pretty vanilla, and they didn’t have many wrinkles, which is why they couldn’t pass midfield in the second half.
FSU can go to RPO’s, counter, inside/outside zone, read option, straight drop-back passing, playaction, short pass game, intermediate, and vertical passing game. FSU can run tempo, slow it down and make Florida declare what they plan to do defensively pre-snap.
The experience Rodemaker has in the system puts Florida’s defensive coordinator at a disadvantage because the tape on Rodemaker is limited.
