Just when you thought the Kenny Pickett Redshirt Hullabaloo was going to be the most embarrassment the football team brought you this week, CBS’s Monday night comedy lineup has you covered:

In case what’s going on isn’t immediately apparent to you, that is Kevin James, star of such films as Grown-Ups, Grown-Ups 2, and Grown-Ups 3D: The Imax Experience wearing a James Conner shirsey on his highly-rated sitcom watched by millions Kevin Can Wait.
On the one hand, this is the national exposure all programs dream of getting; I’m no expert, but one has to think that this sort of national television coverage can only help our recruiting - teens love CBS comedies, after all. And it appears the two Jameses are mutual fans:

Plus, people got jokes:
I thought that the Kevin Stallings hire was rock bottom, but I think we've now reached it. https://t.co/MFkHqqUCYC— Gavin Williams (@GavWill13) October 10, 2017
Jeez, I guess Kevin Can’t Wait... to Hail to Pitt!

We should replace Shawn Watson with Kevin James - these receivers should be running Hitch routes!

Ah, good times.
On the downside, seeing Kevin James in a Pitt shirt has permanently destroyed my appetite for Pitt athletics. Bye forever!
