Read This: DJK on Facebook

I have at times in the past been somewhat critical of DJK. His game day performance has never been in question, but his work ethic in practices certainly has. Well, it sounds like he has his head on straight now and is ready for a hell of a senior year. Here is a quote from his bio on Facebook: (H/T @iowaguru)

Someone once told me that perception is reality. That if a lie reachs enough people, eventually it becomes the truth. Throughout my life, such instances have shaped me, both for better and for worse. As my time as a Hawkeye nears its end, it seems I am at a crossroads, staring down a similar situation. Over the years, various outlets have painted a picture that doesn't quite match the production. Time and again, I have been depicted as an individual more interested in making headlines, than highlights. As someone who prefers style over substance. A person who would rather prepare for media days than two-a-days. Thousands have been convinced that I am all showboat and no sacrifice. Allow me to set the record straight.

I am on a mission to go from the doghouse to the penthouse - determined to show our fans that there is no "DJK" in "team", and that I am well aware of that fact. At Iowa, the success of our group far exceeds the importance of individual accolades. Still, some will undoubtedly inquire, "Don't the records matter?" To be honest, of course they do. Which ones? WINS AND LOSSES. And for those concerned with my media fascination, rest assured, the only coverage I am focused on is that of the opposing defense.

This journey is for Hawkeye Nation. For every generation of fans who have endured season after season, anticipating these types of towering expectations.

Can you feel it, Hawks?

The roar of Kinnick Stadium on opening day...

The sight of freshly harvested corn hats...

The aroma of record-setting, National Championship LEGEND in the air...

Our time is now. And if you didn't know...
