The last Stanford quarterback who majored in economics is doing quite well, in football and in economics. His name is John Elway, and he earns a million dollars a year with the Denver Broncos. John Paye is the latest economics major playing quarterback for Stanford. That's where his comparisons with Elway begin. Understandably, that is where Paye wishes comparisons would end, as well.

The recent heated discussion over the merits of Steve Alford's salary to coach basketball at UCLA included a little analysis from reader Scott Ninegar. John Wooden was paid $6,000 to coach the Bruins in 1948, his first season at UCLA. In today's dollars, Ninegar calculated, Wooden's $6,000 would be $57,994 when adjusted for inflation. Wooden's final salary in the 1975 season, when he won his 10th NCAA title, was $40,500. Ninegar calculated that would now be $175,358. Alford's salary is $2.6 million a year for seven years.  Ninegar has that at 14.8 times what Wooden's $175,358 would have been after adjusting for inflation.

Free safety James Washington of UCLA is well aware that John Paye, the Stanford quarterback he and his fellow defensive backs will be facing today, leads the nation in total offense. Intending no lack of respect, Washington said: "John Paye is not the only great quarterback we've faced. We've already played some of the best in the country." True. Robbie Bosco of Brigham Young is No. 3, and Tony Robinson of Tennessee is No. 5. UCLA won at BYU and pulled out a tie at Tennessee.

Arizona's express to the Rose Bowl was sidetracked in a surprising location. Stanford, a loser of five straight games and sitting on the opposite end to Arizona in the Pacific 10 standings, brought injured quarterback John Paye off the bench Saturday to lead a 28-17 victory over the Wildcats. "Whenever I tried to throw across my body, there was some pain," said Paye, who suffered a partially separated shoulder last week.

Washington Coach Don James decided at halftime Saturday night to give up the run in order to stop Stanford quarterback John Paye in the second half. After Paye burned the Huskies for 213 yards and 2 touchdowns in the first half, James changed his defense and the Huskies escaped with a 24-14 Pacific 10 victory at Stanford. Washington is 4-1 overall and 2-1 in the conference. Stanford is 4-1 and 1-1. "We had to worry about containing Paye on the rollout," James said.

Things are getting so bad for the USC basketball team nowadays that even football players are beating the Trojans. John Paye, who is more renowned as Stanford's quarterback, dropped in four clutch free throws in the final 56 seconds as the Cardinal held on to defeat the Trojans, 61-59, Thursday night at the Sports Arena. It was even more embarrassing for USC because Paye was shooting 44.4% from the foul line going into the game--and he shoots his free throws the old-fashioned way, underhanded.

Wells Fargo & Co. Chief Executive John Stumpf received compensation for 2008 valued at 21% less than the previous year's, according to an analysis of a proxy statement filed Tuesday. Stumpf received $9 million in total compensation in 2008, a year in which the broader banking sector was hammered by the ongoing credit crisis and growing recession. He received $11.4 million in 2007. Both figures were calculated by the Associated Press. Stumpf's base salary increased 17% in 2008 to $878,920.

Catsup heiress Teresa Heinz got her indoctrination into the rough-and-tumble of Massachusetts politics last year, when a newspaper published a picture of her car parked illegally in front of a fire hydrant. The license plate--"HZ57," for "Heinz 57"--was a dead giveaway. Now some Bostonians believe they've gotten a return lesson in money and political power: Heinz and her husband, Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.), have paid to have the hydrant moved around the corner.

The fourth quarter had just begun, and Kurt Josephson, the Stanford left tackle, was yelling. The fourth period does that to Josephson, sort of the excitable type anyway. But this was different. This was the UCLA game. This was for a major bowl invitation. A 7-2 record. Vindication from the ghosts of Stanford past. So Josephson yelled louder. "C'mon line, we've got to block better!" he shouted. "The fourth quarter is ours!"

The last Stanford quarterback who majored in economics is doing quite well as a quarterback and economically. His name is John Elway, and he earns $1 million per year from the Denver Broncos. John Paye is the latest economics major playing quarterback for Stanford. That's where the comparisons with Elway begin. That is where Paye wishes comparisons ended. He has heard more than enough about Elway since becoming Stanford's quarterback four games into his freshman season of 1983.
