As mentioned, since we don't know if we play the makeup games, to even have a chance of the 7 seed we need to sweep the next 2 series. Or in other words, after not winning a D1 game all year we need to win 4 in 9 days. We may still be alive, but Dr. Kevorkian just entered the room and he's looking for the plug.
If we need to win 4 in a row -- I think I'll save my wishes for 4 wins in a row in the conference tourney. Assuming, of course, it actually gets played.
Yeah, I'd rather we'd played someone (but not Carver!) this weekend than have 2 weeks off. But as a practical matter I really don't think it would have made much of a difference in how the rest of they year plays out.
