ORLANDO, Fla. Andrija Novakovich USA Jersey . -- The NBA remains the best among its professional sports peers when it comes diversity hiring.According to the report released Thursday by the Institute for Diversity and Ethics in Sport, the NBA received an A-plus for the second year in a row for racial hiring and dropped to a B in gendering hiring practices. The leagues overall grade of A was its eighth in row as the NBA scored higher than other professional sports league in all three categories.Reports are also issued on the NFL, MLB, MLS, WNBA and college sports.The NBA has been the leaders in pretty much both areas since weve been doing the report card and they are still ahead of everybody even in gender, said Richard Lapchick, who authors the Racial and Gender Report Card released by the Institute for Diversity and Ethics in Sport. The NFL had a C-plus last year and MLB had a C-plus. MLS is the only one close with a B but they only had 80.1 points as opposed to the 83.7 the NBA has got. College sport was the worst of all with 78.8 points with a C-plus.Even in maintaining the best stands, the NBA did some dips in diversity hiring practices with the biggest coming in gender hiring. The NBA went from a B-plus grade in gendering hiring in 2015 to a B this year with drops coming at the team levels and senior leadership positions. In 2015, the NBA scored 88 points but this year only received 83.7 points on the report card.Women comprised 39.6 percent of all professionals in the NBA league offices in this past season, which was slightly down from 40.9 percent in 2015. But women continued to hold just a small percentage of team vice president positions, comprising just 21.5 percent of the team vice president titles. Still, there were five women who served as team presidents/CEO during the 2015-6 season, which is the highest of any mens professional sport.The fact there was sort of slippage with the NBA, not only was the grade low but there was actually a decline in the grade is definitely an area of concern, Lapchick said of the overall dip in gendering hiring. I think its particularly an area concern at the team level and senior leadership positions.The NBA, which is the first sports league to have two minorities as majority owners, also had small loses in the number of head coaches and general managers of color this year. The number of general managers went from six in 2014-15 to just four this past season. The head coaching ranks were comprised of 30 percent of men of color, as opposed to 33.3 percent at the end of the 2014-15 season.This past season began with nine head coaches of color but while some minority coaches lost their jobs during the season that number remained at nine at the end of the season.The NBA has gotten it for a long time, including the general manager position, although this year they were down at the general manager position, Lapchick said. They have been far and away the leader of all of the sports in those areas. Bobby Wood Jersey . 10 Texas Rangers jersey for one last time. Young formally announced his retirement Friday after returning to Rangers Ballpark, his baseball home for all but the last of his 13 major league seasons. Antonee Robinson USA Jersey . LOUIS -- St. http://www.soccerusateamonline.com/David-Bingham-America-Jersey/ . The 29-year-old Baines has established himself as one of the top attacking full backs in the country and was the subject of two bids from United during the last off-season. Everton manager Roberto Martinez says that keeping Baines at the club is a "massive boost and exciting for the future" because he brings "maturity and football knowledge in a very specialized position on the pitch" and an "infectious and positive influence to the rest of the squad. BATON ROUGE, La. -- LSU backup quarterback Danny Etling waved his arms to quiet the Tiger Stadium crowd -- and that was before hed done anything more than complete one first-down pass.Frustrated fans in Death Valley, who had booed LSUs offense on its first two possessions, were simply ready for a change. Etling gave them a measure of hope and likely secured himself a start when the No. 21 Tigers open Southeastern Conference play next week.Replacing struggling starter Brandon Harris on LSUs third possession, Etling opened with three straight scoring drives, and the Tigers pulled away for a 34-13 victory over Jacksonville State on Saturday night.I just think we have a nice team. I think we have a good team. They will rally around whoever tries to be the next man up. I think they did it for me tonight, Etling said.Etling completed six of his first eight passes for 100 yards, including a 46-yard scoring strike to tight end DeSean Smith to cap the quarterbacks first drive. Etling also had a 2 yard TD run.LSU coach Les Miles said Etlings night was not perfect by any means, but also said the transfer from Purdue absolutely put himself in the mix to start going forward.Miles might not have much choice, considering how anemic LSUs offense looks with Harris under center, not just against JSU (1-1), but also in a 16-14 upset against fifth-ranked Wisconsin a week earlier.LSU (1-1) opened the game with 12 total yards and no first downs on its first two offensive series before Miles made the QB change.The Tiger Stadium crowd came alive when Etling took the field for the first time. It was a full-on eruption when Etlings long scoring pass hit Smith in stride down the left sideline, giving LSU a 6-3 lead.It was a pretty cool feeling. It was pretty nice, especially since we were down at the time, Etling said. It was nice to put ourselves in a position to succeed.Etlings performance was not entirely unblemished. All six of his second-half passes were incomplete. He was intercepted by Reggie Hall on a long pass intended for Malachi Dupre in the end zone and later lost a fumble when he was sacked and stripped by Darius Jackson.DELAY OF GAMEKickoff was delayed nearly an hour because of lightning in the area.LEONARD-LESSLeonard Fournette did nott play, getting the night off to rest his left ankle, which took a hard hit at the end of LSUs season opener. Tim Howard Jersey. . Miles has said Fournette is not seriously injured and sounded optimistic that hed be ready to play next weekend.Derrius Guice started for Fournette and rushed for 155 yards, including a 4-yard TD and a 44-yard run to set up another LSU score.SEEING WHITETreDavious the closed LSUs 27-point second quarter with a 60-yard punt return on which he retreated 20 yards to his own 20 before finding his way back up field for the score.I just had it in my head that either I was going to go for the touchdown or coach Miles was going to be mad at me, said White, who had an interception return for a score a week earlier.SLIPPERY SIGNAL CALLERDual-threat QB Eli Jenkins was once again productive for Jacksonville State, which entered the game ranked fifth nationally among teams in the NCAAs second-tier Football Championship. He passed for 248 yards, including a 76-yard scoring pass to Krenwick Sanders, and rushed for 82 yards.It goes back to Elis experience, JSU coach John Grass said. He really looks like a four-year starter.POLL IMPLICATIONSLSU might move up slightly in the Top25 , but the Tigers are expected to win easily against FCS teams.THE TAKEAWAYJacksonville State: Jenkins has the ability to put up big numbers on any defense, meaning his FCS-level opponents will have their hands full. Jenkins is easily on pace to eclipse the 10,000-yard mark in career total yards by the end of this season. He entered the game already holding the JSU record for total yards with 8,688.LSU: Barring an injury to Etling, Harris next snaps might come in mop-up duty. His numbers through his first two starts this season are 13 of 25 (52 percent) for 139 yards, one TD and two interceptions. He completed one of four passes for 8 yards against JSU.UP NEXTJacksonville State: The Gamecocks return home play Coastal Carolina -- an opponent in transition to the top tier FBS -- on Sept. 17.LSU: The Tigers open SEC play at home against Mississippi State on Sept. 17.---AP college football website: collegefootball.ap.org ' ' '
