I don't think you can take all that away from him. If you take it down you should take down anything of Cal's for the trouble he caused at UMASS and Memphis.
Memphis will probably never honor Cal... he was only there nine seasons and left them with a bad taste in their mouth.

Again, the Derrick Rose situation wasn't Cal's fault either, the NCAA's letter even said Calipari is not considered at risk in the investigation. The NCAA ruled him eligible, but after the season said his SAT couldn't be validated.
