Houston Fancher isn't shocked. Not after building up such an immunity to the rumors and speculation. The fact that he - not Buzz Peterson - is the head basketball coach at Appalachian State heading into Friday's game against North Carolina really comes as no surprise. Fancher watched his former boss entertain all the offers. Peterson's name came up for the Georgia job in 1999. He actually agreed to coach at Southwest Missouri State that same summer before deciding to return to Boone. The possibilities didn't end there. After last season, Georgia Tech became an option.
