We conduct one-dimensional stellar evolution simulations in the mass range

$13-20M_odot$ to late core collapse times and find that an inner vigorous

convective zone with large specific angular momentum fluctuations appears at

the edge of the iron core during the collapse. The compression of this zone

during the collapse increases the luminosity there and the convective

velocities, such that the specific angular momentum fluctuations are of the

order of j_{conv}~5×10^15cm^2/sec. If we consider that three-dimensional

simulations show convective velocities that are three to four times larger than

what the mixing length theory give, and that the spiral standing accretion

shock instability in the post-shock region of the stalled shock at a radius of

~100km amplify perturbations, we conclude that the fluctuations that develop

during core collapse are likely to lead to stochastic (intermittent) accretion

disks around the newly born neutron star. Such intermittent disks can launch

jets that explode the star in the frame of he jittering jets explosion

mechanism.
