Greg McElroy: ESPN superstar

I’m getting a little worried now. I hope my editors didn’t watch ESPN today because they’d be busy putting together a package to hire Greg McElroy and toss me aside.

I think the now-former Alabama quarterback has appeared on every television, radio and internet program offered by the self-proclaimed deity of sports media.

It’s not over yet. He’ll be in SportsNation on ESPN2 at 3 p.m. Central after being on FirstTake, the Scott Van Pelt Show and a few others that I’m sure I forgot.

McElroy is also making waves in Tigerland by picking Oregon to beat Auburn in tonight’s big game.

He said Oregon’s pace of play was better suited for dealing with the long layover between games that both teams faced. The rivalry with Auburn, he insisted, had nothing to do with the pick.

UPDATE: Through his Twitter page, McElroy said his final appearance is coming up at 5:20 p.m. on SportsCenter.
