Bobby Hauck addresses the crowd at the Dec. 1, 2017, press conference formally announcing the Montana as the head coach of the Montana Grizzlies football team for the second time.

MISSOULA — It's only January, but it felt like November on Twitter Friday morning. 

In some humorous banter, Montana State football coach Jeff Choate blocked Montana football coach Bobby Hauck on Twitter. 

Hauck found out about being blocked by Choate and sent out a Tweet, with the screenshot attached.

"I've been blocked!!! #BadNeighbor," Hauck wrote.

Choate fired back a tweet a few hours later in response.

"Much to the contrary @Coach_Hauck," Choate wrote. "Tall fences make good neighbors."

The Twitter banter was all in good humor, Hauck said in a text. 

"Just having some fun," Hauck told "So is he."

Montana hosts Montana State in the 118th Brawl of the Wild on Nov. 17.
