I'm sure that time will be a big healer

but enormous damage was done.

For me, the only questions are:
1) How much of the damage was done by the handling of Dino's separation, vs. how much by the angry mob of parents and swimming alums, who refused to accept the decision AND deliberately smeared the replacement?
2) Can we ever expect Busch to recover from that debacle, or will we need to make a 2nd change to make it go away? That question is not intended to question Busch's skills, but I think there is reason to believe he will always be tarnished (unfairly, IMHO) by the manner in which his predecessor was asked to leave, and by the campaign waged against him as he attempted to pick up the pieces.
