Paterno needs cane

MADISON, Wis. -- Most likely against his better stubborn instincts, Joe Paterno had to use a cane to walk onto the Penn State bus at the team hotel today. The Penn State coach was also absent from pre-game warmups at Camp Randall Stadium. He was forced up to the coaches' box for the second straight week because of arthritis in his right leg.
