BJ out for Cap One bowl; Jay Bilas sighting

Unfortunately, as reported by ESPN, wideout BJ Cunningham will be OUT of the Capital One Bowl due to a broken foot suffered in a practice injury on Saturday: "Michigan State junior wide receiver B.J. Cunningham, who led the team with 50 receptions for 611 yards and nine touchdowns during the regular season, will be sidelined for the Jan. 1, 2011, Capital One Bowl game against No. 15 Alabama with a broken foot. The 6-foot-2, 220-pound Cunningham suffered the injury during bowl practice on Saturday, Dec. 18, and underwent successful surgery the next day. He is expected to completely recover in time to participate in spring practice."

Damn, he has been a stud, particularly in the Penn State and Purdue games.

So, here I am at Spartan Hall of Fame Cafe.... and who sneaks in to the coaches corner of the bar? None other than ESPN's Jay Bilas, followed soon after by Tom Izzo and his kid. It's 4:15 pm. They are still here...

PS - he doesn't have as much hair as you see at right. He's like almost bald.

Bilas must be in for the #12 Michigan State vs #18 Texas stint, tomorrow night at 7 pm on ESPN 2.
