If I am reading it correctly, the article on the genetic prehistory of the Americas is an argument against Ice Age Columbus. According to their model, a wave of coastal migration took place along North America's northern coast, flash forwarding population levels to the east coast, presumably dragging some X along with it.

I think that's always been the most common view among academics.
