    Maybe it's just me, but it seems like Self is rarely complimentary of the team, overall, against weak competition. I suspect that's because he doesn't want them to think everybody is going to be an easy opponent. He will, even then, compliment some individual efforts, if they deserve it. He's most complimentary against strong competition, and more often towards the end of the season.

    It's not you, that's exactly what Self does. In fact, most times when we win comfortably (no matter who the competition is) Bill seems to pick nits. But if we lose to quality competition, he seems to be his most complimentary of the team. I'm not questioning the man's tactics, just a simple observation.

    I agree with you both. Bill has his own set of standards by which he judges performance. It's a much different set of observations than someone like Fran Frenchvanila will use on TV. It includes effort, resilience, and a number of other things that the common taters gloss over. I think he uses both praise and criticism to push the team towards optimum performance. It is situation-dependent and it is very specific to each individual team and each individual player at each point in a given season depending on the needs as he sees them.

    Yes, he compliments the team when they need it and does his, "don't get cocky, kid" all the other times. He's always pointing out what they need to improve. Didn't he once say, "If the team isn't hating on me I'm not doing my job" or something like that?

    He also said he had the best pizza he's ever eaten there. So we all need to go there and get that pizza, unless he stole the recipe and gives it to Brady.
