yeah, there were a lot of final game stuff going on if you were watching last night. Someone was taking a picture of Jake, AJ, and Wally during warmups. That doesn't normally happen. :)
I'm guessing that the coaches and people that know Jake, know that he needs surgery. And I'm guessing that Jake is pretty hard to convince. I am sure that it probably kills him to know that he probably could play, but it is better for him not to. Essentially he is trading in his last 4 or 5 games of CFB for a chance at the NFL which he knows is by no means a sure thing.
all i know is that wally did not give a "good game" kind of hug to Jake after the game. It was a long "congrats on a great career, it has been a pleasure to coach you" kind of hug.
also, other players on the sidelines went out of their way to give a him a "good game" hug that they didn't give to the rest of the defense. i may be reading too much into it too. And Jake has proven that he can play through any amount of pain if coach will let him. I think that is why he is being noncommital to saying he is done. Or him and coach being coy to force OU to game plan for him.
Was it one of those hugs that lingers...a little too long...then a slight...mmmmmmmmmm at the end? Maybe a little Barry White in the background? Things just got....awkward.
Seriously, maybe JK20's done, maybe he's not, but the rumor mill 'round these parts has gotten stoopid.
The only rumor is that he is undecided on playing. No question his shoulder is hurt.

If you ask the basketball analysts outside the state of Iowa I think you would be surprised to hear their responses. Iowa was pegged as a preseason top 5 team by one ESPN analyst and is ranked in the vast, vast majority of preseason top 25 polls
