Misinformation, like the above, is part of that reason

We're at 30% OOS lately, and any crunch is largely out of the facts that (1) entitled clowns think their kid "deserves" to go to U.Va. when he or she cannot out-compete others in-state, and (2) our overall enrollment is small for a flagship state school. Decreasing the OOS percentage would only lead to perceptional change. I doubt admitting 400 more in-state students a year while decreasing OOS by 400 to get to 20% would change much about (1), as I'm guessing there are many more than 400 of those each year. Maybe it would help a little from a perception standpoint, but the damage done to the institution would be far greater. There are plenty of Californians mad at Berkeley and UCLA because their kids didn't get in, and plenty of Michiganders mad at U of M for the same reason. And particularly given the fact that the Commonwealth hasn't provided much support at all for the University over the past two decades, I'd side with Molina below. If you want the University to run more like a school "for Virginians," you darn sure should pony up some of Virginians' money to help the University stay great.
