Roadhouse

I don't know what the headline "Roadhouse" has to do with Penn State's woes away from home, but I sure liked the movie of the same name. Could there be a better "bad movie" ever made? And was it the career pinnacle for Patrick Swayze -- may he rest in peace -- as professional "cooler" James Dalton? What? Swayze's still alive? Oops.

I don't know what the headline "Roadhouse" has to do with Penn State's woes away from home, but I sure liked the movie of the same name. Could there be a better "bad movie" ever made? And was it the career pinnacle for Patrick Swayze -- may he rest in peace -- as professional "cooler" James Dalton? What? Swayze's still alive? Oops.

Anyway, the Lions are back on the Big Ten road with Saturday's game at Purdue. And naturally, that means regurgitating Penn State's road conference record since 2000 (12-20). If the Lions are to have any shot of winning the Big Ten and possibly competing for a national title, they're going to have to reverse their curse away from Beaver Stadium. Four of their next five games are on the road, including stops at Wisconsin (Oct. 11) and Ohio State (Oct. 25).
