Question:  Now you said that you do not like the cold but you also said that you realize that at some point you are going to have to play in the cold if you want to reach your ultimate goal, so does it hurt that they are in the Midwest?

Chevelle Buie:  "Yes sir."

Question:  What are going to be the factors when it comes to making your decision?

Question:  You want to play right away?

Chevelle Buie:  "I want to play right away.  Even if I am playing kick return and punt return, make the best out it.  They going to be like, they got to put him on the field.  Do something, make myself better.  Try my best at everything that I've got to do."
