John Calipari usually gets noticed in the off-season for his work on the recruiting trail, not for his appearance. There's a first time for everything though.

At today's SEC meetings, Cal showed up looking a little scruffier than usual. The always clean-shaven coach had some stubble going on.

Reporter Seth Emerson noticed it.

Of course, once that photo began circulating, others started commenting on the facial hair.

While we don't think this is something Coach Cal will roll out regularly, he apparently likes the rugged look.

His own daughter said so.

We'll see how long Calipari goes before shaving.
