poor mouthing






For instance, Barra meticulously reconstructs several competing accounts of the teenage stunt that gave Bryant his nickname -- the wrestling of a carnival bear. A master of self-deprecation, what Southerners call "poor mouthing," Bryant himself often referred to the creature as "scrawny" and "scraggly." Barra's analysis of the event reassures us the brown bear that Bryant fought was neither: "Accounts of Paul Bryant wrestling a small, scraggly, toothless bear are ... both unacceptable and inaccurate."
