The 81-year-old Paterno is currently at Mount Nittany Medical center, where he’s being treated for apparent dehydration. A center spokesman said that other tests are being done on JoePa to “rule out health and other problems.”

Paterno was to travel to Texas tomorrow, and the spokesman says he still plans on making the trip despite his recent health scare.

See what happens when you get too overly excited, Joe?

*UPDATE*: JoePa’s back home, safe & sound.
