You think it’s cold in Iowa? How about in Syracuse, N.Y., where they have no good college football memories to bask in during the months of bleak skies and snow plows?

Bad economy? Tough weather? Holiday travel issues? The goal, if the subject is Syracuse University football, is to render all of that immaterial just like they do out in Iowa, from which the faithful travel in droves . . . even for something like Thursday’s one-sided Outback Bowl at Raymond James Stadium.
