She’s not wrong. When MSU’s enrollment was down, UM got more money and MSU told to figure it out. When UM’s enrollment is down, funding structure changes to give UM more money.

The whole infrastructure argument is a lame cop out.

Sounds like a sugarcoat job by Karen Ogden.

As usual, when the regents get called out on something there’s no comment or they hide behind a rule that loosely applies, if at all.

It’ll be interesting to see how this shakes out.

The whole infrastructure argument is definitely a cop out. There is basically an unwritten rule that either university takes turns on major infrastructure projects. Since Romney Hall had so much trouble getting passed, MSU has been in its “turn” for the last several legislative sessions. But for sure, UM even with a continuing declining student population, will be pushing their infrastructure projects next session.

The $2000 per student difference in State funding is really an amazing amount. I can guarantee that this would not have happened if um was still the larger university and King George was still their president.

It’s getting harder and harder to believe this stuff. Bravo to President Cruzado for saying “enough is enough” and standing up to these clowns. Hmmm, let’s not support the one place that is thriving and basically holding up the rest of the colleges in the state, and rather keep throwing money into the sinking ship after it already hit the iceberg. :roll:

My blood was boiling after reading this. I hope Coach Choate and the boys serve up a 50-burger this year.
