"his teams weren't successful", "Marian didn't win a sectional".
Marian had a historic season for the school in 2012, losing to Norwell in the Huntington Semi-State. The school had never made it to the Semi-State previously. Boys from Michiana simply don't advance deep in the tourney very often. (Even in the class system) Elkhart Memorial also made it deep last year, as it was a very good year for the locals. Doesn't happen often.
I don't think Marian had even won a Sectional in my lifetime.
