That was a tough call for me

First, they were only 11-7 during conference play; all of the teams I highlighted had a better record in conference (and overall).

Second, we got some good breaks on the road to the E8 that season. We didn't have to play #3 WVU (because Stephen F. Austin took them down), and we also dodged #2 Xavier (because Wisconsin took them down).

I guess that E8 felt a little "lucky" (especially in comparison to the prior year).
