Video: Terrance Plummer responds to Houston receiver Deontay Greenberry's comments Jazmyne Hankerson, Central Florida Future
Despite an American Athletic Conference championship, a 12-win season and a Fiesta Bowl championship, Houston wide receiver Deontay Greenberry still wasn't impressed with UCF.
"Last year, to me, in my opinion, they weren't that good," Greenberry reportedly said after practice on Wednesday. "They happened to overcome [and] come up with the W."
The junior wide receiver continued: "We don't really expect this game to be close to be honest with you," he said.
Last season, UCF defeated Houston 19-14, and Greenberry caught eight passes for 94 yards. The game came down to the wire, as then-freshman John O'Korn had a pass deflected out of the end zone on fourth down of the Cougars' final possession.
O'Korn found Greenberry in the back of the end zone on third and goal, but the pass tipped off the receiver's fingers and fell incomplete.
"We don't respond to stuff like that, it's about us," senior linebacker Terrance Plummer said. "It's about our team and we can't worry what our opponent thinks about us."
The Knights face the Cougars Thursday night on ESPN. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m.
