Good cop (CSU), bad cop (UC)

UC and CSU seem to have fallen into a de facto good cop/bad cop approach to the governor and state funding.  UC is threatening tuition increases and conflict with the governor.  CSU has avoided the T-word and talked about enrollment.  Earlier, it seemed to suggest that enrollment was going to be limited by insufficient funding (although tuition would remain frozen). Now it seems to be on a positive kick. It will do more in terms of enrollment but only if the state does more in terms of funding. Of course, it is more pleasant to be the good cop offering "more" and easier to do when UC volunteered in advance to play bad cop.  On CSU's latest approach, see
