Cyclones coach Dan McCarney allows Jason Berryman to return to the team after serving 258 days in jail for stealing $4 from another student and taking a cell phone from another. Unlike some programs who allow students who commit petty theft to rejoin by bending rules and leaning on the "boys will be boys principle"-HACK HARUMPH LOUD CLEARING OF THROAT MOCK COUGHING SOUND-philfulmerbobbybowdenlouholtz- HRUMPH HACK-excuse me!-Berryman actually served jail time and will rejoin the squad and the school on his own dime.
One weird excerpt from the article caught our eye. Check out the tag line:
Iowa State went 2-10 during Berryman's only season. Last season, while Berryman was in jail, the Cyclones finished 7-5 and beat Miami of Ohio in the Independence Bowl.
The logical conclusion? If someone doesn't get Berryman in the pen immediately, the Cyclones will go 2-10 this year. Quick, someone wave a ten dollar bill in his face!
We wish Berryman the best.
