I was just pulling off of I-5 to 520 when I received a text message saying that this afternoon's practice was officially closed to the media and Coach Steve Sarkisian would not be available either.
Well, no one is quite certain. The Huskies may have had a poor practice this morning. Sarkisian may have wanted the team to himself. The ultimate pessimist might think there was an injury during this morning's practice that the team doesn't want to become public. This practice was closed to the media last year, so there is some precedent.
I'm not sure it matters what the reasoning is behind it. Realistically, it was only supposed to be a 40-minute walk through anyway so nothing is really lost from a coverage standpoint. This post is just a head's up that there will be no postpractice blog or video.
