We all know the story well. Just weeks before the season, senior star quarterback Braxton Miller is shutdown for the year.

Barrett sat down with fellow former Buckeye Kirk Herbstreit in yet another outstanding Barrett feature on ESPN's College GameDay this morning. He continues to look every bit the leader and with each week that goes by, you wonder more and more what next year is going to look like if he's forced to take a back seat for a season again.
