IIRC, the rationale was that they are state schools, so state residents should be prioritized. Moreover, I think there were examples of Iowa not really trying to recruit Iowans as students. It's been a few years. I'll google and see if I can find a story from when it was in the news.Well LC if they are rewarding ISU for more in-state residents enrolling to ISU that is a huge problem. The athletics reference is only because the State should not be “helping” ISU simply cause Iowa makes way more. It is simple. They are both state schools. Iowa brings in way more revenue and the fact they have way more out of state residents that pay a ton more should not be a negative on what the state pays to the schools. That was my point.
EDIT: Well, that was easy.

I don't know what the current funding formula is. But as I said earlier, this doesn't really have anything to do with football or other sports, anyway. Sorry to have contributed to straying from the board subject.
