No. Not in the NFL, only in college football
Through Super Bowl XLIV, that is the Dallas Cowboys who were penalized 133 yards in Super Bowl V against the Baltimore Colts.
You cannot decline the penalty, since it is happening prior to the snap, you can, however, decline the YARDAGE of the penalty.
it means that the penalty the other team had, you don't want the yardage to be added on. Say if it were third down and ten, and the offense didn't get the first down. I would decline the penalty so it would be fourth down. the team would most likely punt the ball to you
he gets the yardage and touchdowns
to add and subtract yardage
You need to be more specific. Total yardage in a single game? Total yardage in a season? Total yardage in a college career? And is it rushing yardage, passing yardage, kickoff yardage, puntyardage, kickoff-return yardage, punt-return yardage, total return yardage, or total yardage. If it's passing yardage, do you mean as a receiver or as a passer?Of course, I don't know the answer either way, and really, who cares? It's Division II. It could be a million yards, but whoever holds the record can't hold a candle to the average division I-A player. If they could, they would have played in Division I-A, or at least I-B.But if you want anyone to answer this question, you're going to have to be more precise in how you ask it.
If the penalty is assessed against the defense, the ball will be moved that number of yards toward the goal, or half the distance to the goal, whichever is less. the same applies in the opposite direction, except that it's highly unlikely that half the distance to the goal behind you will ever be less than the penalty yardage unless there are a lot of consecutive penalties on first down or the QB is an idiot and runs the wrong way before getting penalized. In any case, a dead-ball foul will cause first-down to be replayed with the modified yardage to go (usually 5 or 15, but depends on the penalty assessed).
A sack is when a quarterback is tackled for a loss of yardage.
