Murray State Vs. Florida State: Seminoles Offensive Line Impressive In Win

Florida State overwhelmed Murray State by a score of 69-3 on Saturday and lost in all of the offensive numbers was a very solid performance by the Seminoles' offensive line. Florida State racked up 606 yards of total offense with 285 coming on the ground. Perhaps most impressive was that Florida State did not have a single run go for negative yards.

SB Nation Florida State blog Tomahawk Nation talks about the offensive line and points out that it was lacking in cohesiveness during the 2011 season.

Yes, it was Murray State. But assignments are assignments. Mental mistakes are mental mistakes. And Florida State's offensive line, at least on opening night, didn't have many. It looked much closer to the 2009-2010 groups that helped produce some of the better offenses in the country, than the 2011 unit that was the primary factor in the offense's plummet to 32nd nationally. Knowing who to block on each play is obviously an important part of playing offensive line, and for a very inexperienced group, the smoothness with which it went about its business was impressive.

Florida State's running backs had to be happy with the room to run as James Wilder rushed for 106 yards and two touchdowns on just 12 carries.
