DETROIT -- The Tennessee Titans set the tone for their game against Detroit on the opening kickoff, when Cody Riggs was called for a penalty during the return.The Lions answered immediately with Haloti Ngatas offside infraction on the first play from scrimmage.Forget the final score of 16-15 Titans. For much of Sundays game , the story was the penalties, which occurred with such frequency for the first three quarters it looked like these two teams might threaten a 65-year-old NFL record.Detroit finished with 17 penalties for 138 yards, and Tennessee was flagged 12 times for 83 yards.Thats got to be an NFL record, Titans coach Mike Mularkey said. Id have to think that.Not quite. The record is 37 penalties by Cleveland (21) and Chicago (16) on Nov. 25, 1951. The Lions and Titans were nearly halfway there after two quarters, having combined for 18. They were at 26 by the end of the third.In 1937, Detroit was called for only 19 penalties for 139 yards all season -- two records that still stand. The Lions nearly reached both of those totals in one game Sunday.Ive never seen anything like that, Detroit cornerback Darius Slay said. The refs were calling everything. Got to clean it up and do better next week.The flags cost Detroit crucial points in an almost farcical sequence toward the end of the first half. A pass interference call on Tennessee gave the Lions first-and-goal from the 1. Then Detroits Eric Ebron had a touchdown catch wiped out by an offensive pass interference call on him.On the next play, Matthew Stafford had another TD pass nullified, this time by a holding penalty. And the Lions were called for holding again on the play after that, leaving them with first-and-goal from the 26. They settled for a field goal.Obviously, the penalties were a problem. Seventeen penalties is ridiculous, Detroit coach Jim Caldwell said. We need to stop this. Time after time, we put the ball into the end zone and had it brought back by penalties, and we let the Titans off the hook several times with defensive penalties.A flag on a punt pinned the Titans back at their 5 in the first quarter and led directly to a safety that gave the Lions a 2-0 lead. Detroit had a touchdown called back in that quarter as well, but the Lions reached the end zone on that drive anyway.There were four offside calls in the first quarter, and in the second, the Titans managed to get flagged for offside while kicking off after a field goal.Tennessee tight end Delanie Walker said the teams could have anticipated this type of game with referee Brad Allens crew. There are scouting reports on officials too.We knew what type of referees we had, Walker said. They were probably throwing the most holding penalties, which they showed. We expected that. They made the game slower, but they are the referees. Theres no use fighting with them.In the third quarter, the Lions drove 63 yards in 14 plays for a field goal and a 15-3 lead. There were five penalties on that drive: holding on Detroit, unnecessary roughness on Detroit, holding on Tennessee, offensive pass interference on Detroit, and roughing the passer on Tennessee.It was that kind of day.Tough to win a game that way, Stafford said.

But when it comes to determining if Raymond will find a place on the Leafs roster when training camp concludes in a week, well, that decision will ultimately fall to the head coach. ORLANDO, Fla. -- A study of the racial and gender makeup of leadership and decision-making positions among the 128 Football Bowl Subdivision schools remain overwhelmingly white and male dominated.The report released Monday by the Institution for Diversity and Ethics in Sports (TIDES) of University of Central Florida found white men hold the vast majority of president, athletic directors and faculty athletic representative positions at FBS schools for the 2016-17 academic year.As somebody who has worked at an institution of higher education for 45 years I always hope that we provide wisdom and leadership for the country, particularly in difficult times, said TIDES director Dr. Richard Lapchick, the primary author of the report. When the leadership in college sports and college presidents dont reflect who the American people are visually then their ability to make sound judgments are not going to be as good as they would be if there were a diverse pool of athletic directors and others.Whites comprised 88.3 percent of the presidents, 85.9 percent of the athletic director jobs, 89.4 percent of the faculty representative positions and 100 percent of the FBS conference commissioner jobs at the beginning of the 2016-17 academic year. White males make up 75.8 percent of the presidents, 78.9 percent of the athletic directors and 90 percent of the faculty representatives. When Judy MacLeod was named as the Conference USA commissioner in 2015 she became the first woman to lead any of the 11 FBS conferences.The decision makers are responsible for hiring coaches where the diversity numbers have always lagged. Of the 128 FBS schools, 87.5 perceent of the head football coaches are also white males.ddddddddddddThats actually why we started doing this leadership study is because had the coaching ranks stayed so stagnant for so long then it declined in basketball where they use to be pretty good, Lapchick said. Thats when I decided to look at who is making the decisions.The report also showed there was a slight decrease by 0.4 of percentage point from a year ago in women who hold any of the 388 campus leadership positions at the highest level of collegiate sports. The number of people of color holding campus leadership roles actually increased, but only by 0.7 of a percentage point from the 2015 report.To address the poor hiring numbers, the NCAA adopted The Pledge and Commitment to Promoting Diversity and Gender Equity in Intercollegiate Athletics last September. But the pledge, which was signed by several college presidents, has been widely criticized because its scene as non-binding and offers no sanctions for not improving the hiring record of university athletic departments.Lapchick has championed the NCAA adopting a hiring practice similar to the Rooney Rule used by the NFL, which requires that teams interview a diverse pool of candidates. He believes it should be called the Eddie Robinson Rule, named after the former Grambling coach and second all-time winningest coach in college football history.It would require a pool of candidates that is diverse so that the presidents and athletic directors would include people of color, Lapchick said.
