Broyles has been criticized for his strict policy against scheduling and playing the only other two Arkansas I-A schools, Arkansas State Indians and University of Arkansas at Little Rock Trojans, while continuing to schedule lower division schools, as well as Arkansas State's Sun Belt Conference rivals, Louisiana-Monroe and Louisiana-Lafayette. Broyles' policy became a minor issue in the 2006 gubernatorial election due to candidate Mike Beebe's status as an ASU alumnus and fan.[2] Arkansas State University student union, Jonesboro, AR.

In 2000 Broyles worked to convince the Arkansas legislature to move all Razorback home games to Fayetteville and end more than a half-century of scheduling two or three home games each year at War Memorial Stadium in Little Rock. This effort prompted considerable media coverage and fan concern in the central Arkansas area before a compromise was eventually reached to retain at least one home game in Little Rock.[3] War Memorial Stadium in Little Rock, Arkansas during an Arkansas Razorback football game. ...


Broyles' relationship with Ted Herrod, a wealthy booster in Dallas, came under fire after it was revealed Herrod had been overcompensating Razorback athletes who worked part-time jobs at his trucking company.[4] A lengthy NCAA investigation followed which resulted in several minor sanctions.[5] Arkansas fans commonly refer to the investigation as the "NCAA Cloud" that hung over the program.[citation needed]
