Last night a regular came into the brewpub where I work and handed us a paper shopping bag full of some hops he had picked that day. He didn't know the type they were, but I let our brewer see them to day and he was pretty certain they were Nuggets.

Long story short,
We put them into big ziplock bags and they've been sitting in a keg cooler since last night. Will they be decent to brew with tomorrow? How long before wet hops go bad?

I don't know about going bad, but why not lay them out to dry? It only takes a couple days, and I think you'd be much happier with the results.
