The Abilene Paradox

Steven Branscombe-USA TODAY Sports

Here's a little fun we can discuss during the game thread.

The Abilene Paradox is when a group of people decide on a course of action that is counter to the preferences of most, if not all, of the individuals in the group. It involves a breakdown of group communication in which each member incorrectly believes that their own preferences are counter to the group's and does not raise any objections.

Ever had this happen to you?

Think that some athletic administrations might occasionally work this way?

Okay, enough of that as I'm sure many of you probably could care less but it was the one cool thing about Abilene that I could come up with other that this

Personally, I find the lyrics debatable. More so than the paradox.
