John Chadima, senior associate athletic director, resigned over allegations that he made unwanted sexual advances toward a student employee during a Rose Bowl party.
But perhaps the bigger question for UW-Madison is whether it should be hosting keggers with donor money at events like the Rose Bowl. And will the scandal hurt donations to the athletic department, which uses them to fund student scholarships and build facilities, among other things?
One donor to the UW athletic department is not concerned that donor money funds parties. Curt Brink, owner of the Brink Lounge, says, "It doesn't bother me. Parties are how you reward donors."
He is confident that the scandal is being handled properly, and it won't deter him from donating more money. Says Brink: "I have confidence in the athletic board that if somebody abused the system, they will take care of it."
