What UW’s spring game might have looked like

Interesting story today from ESPN.com’s Ivan Maisel on how a number of schools are trying to perk up their spring game experiences with live music, fan competitions and pep rallies.
In fact, the Huskies had an opportunity to take part in this event, and deciding whether to do so is why there was a little delay in announcing dates for spring ball.
Ultimately, negotiations fell through. One reason is that there were concerns whether any of the musical groups being offered would be enough of a draw to really make it worth moving the spring game ahead a week. And as you can see, UW also doesn’t fit the preferred demographic of schools “that aren’t near major metropolitan areas.”
In the end, the Huskies decided to stick with their regularly scheduled spring ball plans, with the spring game set for April 26.
