Joe Paterno out of hospital, improving

Penn State football coach Joe Paterno leaves the Louis and Mildred Lasch Football Building on the Penn State campus in State College, Pa., Tuesday Nov. 8, 2011. Paterno's support among the Penn State board of trustees was described as "eroding" Tuesday, threatening to end the 84-year-old coach's career amid a child sex-abuse scandal involving a former assistant and one-time heir apparent.
