As if Joe Paterno didn't have enough headaches already this season.
Penn State's head football coach sustained a minor injury when a trophy fell on his head at his State College home early Saturday morning before the
Nittany Lions' game against Northwestern, Penn State spokesman Jeff Nelson confirmed Monday.
Paterno, who will turn 78 next month, needed 11 stitches to close a cut behind his ear, but still coached his 460th career game Saturday, leading the
Nittany Lions out of the tunnel in the south end zone as usual.
After six games, Joe Paterno’s Penn State football team is 2-4, the same record the team had at this point last year on the way to a 3-9 mark, the
worst season in school history.

Some say that the trophy was attempting suicide in an effort to forget about the past few seasons...
