Phil Steele's 2011 OL Career Starts Returning

Despite losing 2 starters (C & OG), FSU's OL still returns 3 experienced starters: Sanders, Datko & Spurlock. The problem, however, is that all 3 of these returning starters missed spring practice and two missed some PT in 2010 due to injury. Spurlock missed the spring, some starts in 2010 due to multiple concussions and is the least likely to start for the entire season; Datko missed the spring, has had should problems which required surgery in both of the last two off-seasons and caused him to miss starting in three games in 2010; and Sanders missed the spring due to abdominal surgery. One of the lost 2010 starters is replaced with the #1 JUCO OL (Fahrenkrug). The other starting OG/C position is open for competition among 7 OL/OG currently on our roster... and in theory 3 incoming HS Fr OL/OG, i.e., 10 OL. So although FSU ranks very high on Steele's OL starts returning list, that ranking is deceptive because it's likely that injuries will have a significant negative affect on the 3 returning OL starters.
