If you missed my ToB post which gives more details, you can check it out here, or go to The Morning News original announcement post here for more background information. The brackets were FINALLY released, and I’m here today to share my predictions.
These are not necessarily my personal feelings, although in some cases it is, but is how I think things will shake out. The most challenging match-up, in my opinion, is An Untamed State versus Station Eleven. I think which ever one loses initially here, will re-enter in the zombie round for sure! I also *could* see All the Light We Cannot See taking The Bone Clocks, but I’m hoping not.
