MISSOULA and BOZEMAN – Bobby Hauck and Jeff Choate have known each other in the small world of college football coaching for years, but now they find themselves on opposite sides of Montana’s biggest rivalry.
The two head coaches have made beating their rival one of the biggest priorities for the program, but they both can still show a sense of humor.
Friday morning Montana coach Hauck posted to his Twitter account that he had been blocked by Montana State coach Choate.

Choate responded, assuring Hauck that there were no hard feelings.
Much to the contrary @coach_hauck. Tall fences make good neighbors. pic.twitter.com/9bGguT8zMv

We’re only 295 days away from kickoff between Montana and Montana State in Missoula in November. Can’t wait.
