When I saw this headline, my first thought was, "... even behind the NHL?" Not exactly. The five professional sports leagues in the study included the WNBA, NBA, MLS, MLB, and the NFL. The Institute for Diversity and Ethics in Sport, which completed the study, "noted that even leagues with low grades generally had better records in diversity than the country at large." NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said, "We don't spend any time looking at their figures ... We think it's irrelevant and it's purely a publicity gimmick."

Take the under: this week will see multiple teams with good defenses square off against one another in games including Michigan-Northwestern and Florida-Missouri.
