    Outback Bowl football referee's call disputed by 3-year-old girl

    Facing 4th and 4 from their own 37-yard line, the Michigan Wolverines get the ball to Floyd Simmons for what looks like just about 3 1/2 yards -- not enough for the first down.
    The referees spot the ball and measure the distance. When the chains are placed, it appears that Michigan is just short of the first down.But not according to referee Jeff Maconaghy. It's first down Michigan. Even after coach Steve Spurrier challenges the call, the referees still award a fresh set of downs to the Wolverines.You were likely livid at the call. And so were 3-year-old Ada Foster and her 6-year-old sister, Logan Foster.In a video posted to YouTube by the pair's father, Jason Foster, Ada and Logan analyze the referee's call just like a television analyst would.

    The football is really not touching [the pole]," Ada says, using a pencil to point out the distance between the first down marker and the ball on the television. "It's really not!"Meanwhile, Logan, who is talking on the telephone with someone she calls "Mr. Pole", interjects."Hey there, Mr. Pole! The football is supposed to be touching you. What has happened? The football is not touching you," said Logan.

    Ahm but Jenna, did you see the actual game on TV?? One of the better games this season, expecially, the "hit heard around the world" when Clowney steamrolled over Michigan running back Vincent Smith.
