Well, we're all going to have our own opinions as to the blame...

for what I view as a total hot mess.

I guess my view would be that the blame for not supporting the new staff (and thus, the entire swimming and diving program) falls on:

Swim/dive alums
Parents of former and current swimmers/divers
Dino supporters in general
Negative recruiting by competitors
Media relations in the Athletics Dept

For me, Dino himself can't be blamed for not fully embracing the new staff, or even for not publicly asking his followers to tone it down. Neither can the Busch brothers be blamed for not being more aggressive in currying favor from the former swimmers and their parents.

Just one guy's opinion.
