The Insanity That Is Project 119
Project 119 — the crazed attempt to visit all 119 Division I-A stadiums — has posted three new videos of the latest trip — "The Great Nor'Easter" — that covered nine stadiums. We've featured one of the videos above, the other two can be viewed at Project 119.
We were impressed with Project 119's visit to Army's Michie Stadium, where two cadets, including linebacker John Plumstead, greeted the team (that video is on Project 119's site). Seeing what quality kids they have at West Point, you can't help but pull for the Black Knights when they take the field.
Other postings from stadiums visited on the latest journey: Rutgers, Connecticut, Boston College, Syracuse and Buffalo. Three other reviews are in the works.
At last count, 43 stadiums have been visited, with rumors of a swing through Atlantic Coast Conference territory and perhaps, Southeastern Conference country coming this fall.
One of the low points of the trip continues to be the journey to Iowa's Kinnick Stadium. Project 119 ringleader Dave Farris wrote: "I wish that the University of Iowa didn't employ total jackasses to lord over Kinnick Stadium. Apparently, Iowa is convinced that they are too good to allow people to take pictures in their newly renovated stadium."
That brought a call earlier this month from Cedar Rapids Gazette columnist Mike Hlas, and we've included his column in the comments section below this post.
