AUSTIN, Texas -- There is something to be said about every play, every day. While I have never been a huge fan of Cal Ripken Jr.'s record streak of 2,632 consecutive games played, I do acknowledge that showing up is half of the battle. He showed up every day for 17 years, and that in and of itself is impressive.

Showing up in college football is very different. Texas started the year with huge expectations when Mack Brown intimated that he had a team that possessed the talent to be in and possibly win every game on the schedule.
