Don't post on here very much, but I was the one who wrote this with LSUHornet17, and also wanted to thank everyone for checking out our rebuttal and sharing your thoughts about it.
FWIW: We got a reply from Bernucca in the form of a comment on his original column:
I saw the rebuttal. I thought it was a little nit-picky on some fronts but overall it presented the upbeat counterpoint to my "Gloomy Gus" view. A lot of this stuff comes down to "eye of the beholder" stuff. I like established players; others like draft picks. I like trying to fix what I have to remain perennially competitive; others like the wrecking ball and starting over. I like honesty; others like optimism.
Take from that what you will. He calls it “eye of the beholder” stuff. I myself take a bit of offense to that; I’d prefer to call it thorough research proving why his claims are invalid, but to each their own.
