Chris Partridge's tweet suggests the Maize and Blue Grinch might be stealing someone's Christmas. I wonder what that might mean?
and that's with them already having to raise capacity by 200 spots due to demand (the original cap filled up in 8 days)

If you don't want to click on that, I guess I'll copy and paste the full thing:

Love how the staff is promoting their strong NFL ties since they've been here and hope they keep it up.
Tom Lemming calls the hire of Partridge a "brilliant move" and says Michigan is now the "odds on favorite" to land 2016 5 star defensive tackle Rashan Gary who he calls a difference maker and is currently the composite #2 player in the country.
A brilliant move by Michigan to hire Chris Partridge HC of Paramus Catholic,NJ. Not only is he a good coach but he also has the number one— Tom Lemming (@LemmingReport) February 1, 2015
Player in the country for next year Rashan Gary 6'5"290 DT. The Wolverines immediately become odds-on favorite to land The difference maker.— Tom Lemming (@LemmingReport) February 1, 2015
Who’s Chris Partridge? He’s the head football coach at Paramus Catholic High School in Paramus, New Jersey. With much of the focus here yesterday having been on losing Malik McDowell to Michigan State, I’m not sure if anyone has mentioned how close Michigan was to becoming the biggest loser on college football’s National Signing Day. Chris Partridge might’ve saved Michigan from that ignominious fate.
According to an article today in one of the northern New Jersey newspapers, Jabrill Peppers was wavering on his commitment to Michigan as late as Tuesday night. Peppers reportedly said, I guess I got nervous [Tuesday] and started doubting myself. But Coach Partridge spent a lot of time with me and put everything back into perspective. I realized Michigan is the place I wanted to be. http://www.northjersey.com/sports/Jabrill_Peppers_signs_Michigan_letter_of_intent.html
So, thank you, Chris Partridge.
On a side note, there might be reason to root for another one of Jabrill Peppers’ teamamtes, besides Juwann Bushell-Beatty. Alex Beards of Paramus Catholic signed with Slippery Rock!
