More than 50,000 of you read the first installment of Football Across Minnesota, a new weekly Monday night column from Star Tribune Sports columnist Chip Scoggins, making it our most-read sports story last week. Thank you.

Chip, who has covered all levels of football in his 20-plus years at the Star Tribune, will tackle football topics in our state each week from preps to pros. Small-school gems, analysis of the Vikings and Gophers, his takes on the moment's hottest topics, and more — it's all in-bounds for Chip each week.

Look for it on every Monday night, publishing online at 7:15 p.m. for the kickoff of "Monday Night Football."

And a post-publishing treat: Hop on Twitter for the first quarter of MNF each week and chat with Chip (@chipscoggins) about what he wrote.

Thanks, Star Tribune readers, for making the debut of Football Across Minnesota a success last week. Let's keep it going.
