Knowing That You Don't Know



It was Donald Rumsfeld who said:

The message is that there are no knowns. There are things we know that we know. There are known unknowns. That is to say there are things that we now know we don't know. But there are also unknown unknowns. There are things we don't know we don't know.

When I was reading Glen's posts regarding Wiltjers 3-point shooting and it's impact on Cats, and the lasting effect of UK's "slow" start, and their ensuing comments from fans the Rumsfeld statement came to mind which in turn led to a bit of research (it's amazing the time you have being 74 and retired). That exploration led to this piece from Chris Lee and how it relates to sports fans in general and in the case of ASoB UK fans in particular. Pick any topic regarding college basketball and it is a certitude that we UK fans will think we are more knowledgeable, more experienced, more attuned than anyone, and positively better than the "average" fan. Why many of us know we know more than Calipari and Mitchell.

If you have the time and interest and don't mind sometimes dry reading give it a shot—you might learn that and what you don't know.
