When the Prof sees 85 footnotes to Wikipedia sources, do you think it will adversely impact my grade?

So, I've done this to myself. I have no one to blame but myself [and the scapegoats of the day: George Bush, Mel Gibson and Joe Torre] for my current position: I have to have a draft of my 30 page Senior Thesis to the professor next week.

My progress so far:

I should have been diligent like the other students in my class, who spent time over the summer researching their topics [I didn't pick mine until the day the outline was due a month ago]. I should have been rearin' to go once I handed in my outline and hit the ground running with a gameplan of how to approach research and scholarly activities.

The truth sad part is: I just don't care.

I've never had to write a scholarly paper in my life, maybe Wikipedia will give me insight into that as well...
