Calipari Beard: 6 Styles For Coach Cal To Consider

The most important thing to come out of the SEC Spring Meetings in Destin is that John Calipari has a beard. The normally clean-cut head coach of the Kentucky Wildcats was available to the media on Wednesday, and everyone was surprised to see he missed a couple of shaves with his Harry’s razor.

Is it a great beard? No. Is it as good as my beard? No. Of course not. You kidding me? But Calipari’s scruff can be described as beard-ish, and his daughter said he’s very proud of it.

Now we all need to know: Should he keep it? I say yes, so I mocked up a couple of beard-styles for him to consider.

(1) There’s the beard with no mustache, first made popular by the Amish community, but can be trendy with a nice fade…

(2) Or the “I’ve been too busy to shave” beard that some men can pull off, but can be confused for the “He really let himself go” beard if not done right…

(3) Or a nice goatee similar to Wags’ on Billions

(4) Or the line beard, often seen outside Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium in the fall…

(5) Or the most popular beard in basketball: the James Harden…

(6) But if Cal were to grow out his Harden, I think it would look more like this…


Keep growing it out, Cal!

The beard gang could use another ambassador.

    Maybe he will find his second NC behind the untouched shaving cream.
    Fun post, digging the Roger Harden. Maybe he should let it grow until we win another championship.
    Get some ZZ Top action growing?

      If you and your undershirt will take two paces back, I could enter this dwelling.

      Roger Harden?
