For rules on the contest, view them here
We have reviewed all submits that were either sent to us through: e-mail, blog comments, and #TheDZone #SSS on Twitter through 9 weeks. We have broken through the hashtags and have released a top 10 list, in order of schools who have submitted. Remember these are Power Rankings, so they are heavily judged on what we received this past week and not from submits in the past.
Also send us as many pictures from inside of the section and of the overall section for pictures as possible.
Remember to follow directions. We have a process we use and didn't make rules for nothing!
Bonus points this week: Week 9 falls on Halloween, so something related to Halloween will be considered for playoffs, school colors and unity also will be considered points, as the teams needs the student section behind them.
Remember these are rankings from weekly submits, bonus points are only influenced if you have a submit to begin with.
1. Chippewa Valley (Rowdy Red Zone)
A solid week to cap off the regular season, shouldn't have much problems traveling a few miles for Round 1 game vs. Stevenson.
The last 8 weeks of the rowdy red zone! No better way to spend our Friday nights #thedzone #sss pic.twitter.com/Ognt5W4Uwy

4. Rochester Adams (Adams Student Section)
Adams picked it up late and for the past 2 weeks led the state in submits and as a result as shot up the rankings.

Reason why knocked out:
Bedford, West Bloomfield, and Northview had 0 submits.
Other tweets we get:
1 submit of pic/video isn't good enough for our standards and shouldn't be your standard either, so send more pictures and videos!
Label who your school is and duplicate pictures only count as 1 submit, regardless of how many people tweet it.
If you don't submit and follow rules you aren't considered. You can't mail a college application to no one and expect to hear back, use common sense.
Before you tweet, think about those above two comments, if you meet them (which you know you do) please just follow the rules and you'll be cracking the top 10 before you know it.
