Another really nice morning here in Seattle greets the Huskies as they prepare for their first Saturday practice of the spring — one that could feature a little bit of scrimmaging.
Like all but two of UW’s workouts this spring, however, this one is closed to the general public — the next two Saturdays, however, will be open, when UW practices on April 21 at 11 a.m. at Memorial Stadium and then the Spring Game April 28 at CenturyLink Field.
We’ll have full coverage of today’s practice later. Until then, a few links and notes. …
