I'm always "Put The Money In My Hansbrough"

Funny, my bracket for the past 3 years has been "Fuck Tyler Hansbrough" but that's because he's always found a way to beat my school and/or send them out of the tourney with absurd shots that always fall.

Setting records because you played for four years doesn't mean anything. You don't need talent to play in college.
Look at him in the NBA
You just posted a bunch of meaningless records, but at-least you wasted your time
