Rex motivates like he's coaching a soccer team full of 7 year olds... Everyone is good! Everyone is great! Making strides... Everyone gets a participation trophy....
"There’s one thing about the athlete: You keep telling him how good he is, he’s going to start believing it to the point that he may not be preparing quite the way he should. Rex has been the only coach that we know, in maybe the history of the game that I’m familiar with, that keeps continually telling his guys how good they are. It's rather alarming. I think these guys might be believing that they’re better than they are."
