Johnson: "We can't ever underestimate..."

The Miami Hurricane freshmen wide receivers will face a very experienced, feisty Central Florida defensive back four. Read on what WR Aldarius Johnson has to say about them and on the team's recent string of losses.

On Central Florida's senior laden defensive backfield...
They are good defensive backs, they break ont he ball well, they are sure talkaive. They never relax and they come hard every play. We have to match the intensity as the day goes.

On nearly breaking some big receptions for scores...
I feel I am getting real close. I just need to get better in practice. One guy shoe string (tackles) me, another guy I throw off my back. I am just getting better as the game goes and practice goes.

On losing the last two games after the Texas A&M game...
We felt like we could beat a team and get comfortable. We can't ever underestimate our opponent again. Then we lose and its like 'damn, we aren't supposed to lose'. We just got to come out and work hard, every team is better then us, we got a point to prove. We've been coming close to winning the game, we just need to execute the little things and we'll overcome.

On the Florida game...
Everybody said they'd blow us out, but when they saw it was a close game everyone started looking at us differently. Made us confident we could win it all. We just need to come out and believe that again.
