Stay tuned for the SEC's color commentary on the bracket, highlighting some of the epic contests that will take place over the course of Lent Madness 2015. Right now you should read, mark, learn, and inwardly digest the bracket. Then brag to all your friends about how you've memorized all the match-ups and can't wait for Lent to begin.

Once you have the bracket in your hot little hand, don't stop by simply posting it on your refrigerator. The Supreme Executive Committee offers a few suggestions for helping spread the Lent Madness word.
1. Post a copy of the bracket on the front door of your church. In fact, why stop at your church? Channel your inner Martin Luther and nail the bracket to the doors of every church in your neighborhood.
3. Mail them out with all your Christmas cards this year. "Lent Madness: It's the Reason for the Season."
4. Go to the mall and put them under the windshields of every car in the parking lot. For Jesus.
5. Get front row seats at televised sporting events and hold up the bracket. Consider it the new John 3:16 sign. Rainbow wig optional.
6. Staple a copy of the bracket to your dog's collar and let her roam around the neighborhood sans leash.
Feel free to share other ideas (with photo documentation) of course. They may just end up on the Lent Madness Facebook page.
