Even the ordained are chiming in on the big Michigan State University and Indiana University game taking place on Tuesday night at the Jack Breslin Student Events Center. 

The No. 4 Spartans host the No. 1 Hoosiers in what will be a raucous affair in East Lansing. Now we can say even the very religious are getting their barbs in before the game. 

On Tuesday morning, Michigan State football chaplain, Fr. Joseph Krupp, proved he can talk a great game with this smack tweet he sent out (h/t Hot Clicks). 

I like to think Father dropped his smart phone like a microphone and walked away with tremendous swagger after hitting the tweet button. 

Of course, things on Twitter tend to get out of hand. When a game that is already garnering national attention gets some epic run from a chaplain, you know fans will answer in kind. 

Matthew Zimmerman answered back with an equally witty retort. 

Indiana fan Bryan Meyer also had words in response

As did this fan

Of course, there will be some out there who find awful context where none exists—like this report from Lost Letterman.

In regards to reading carelessly between the lines—stop. This was obviously a joke and meant to be some sports smack from a huge Michigan State fan. 

Nothing more. 

Upsets, buzzer beaters and Harlem Shake dances abound. For the moment, the best part of college basketball is the pre-game hype. 

In a bizarre turn, the best game out there is being delivered by a Michigan State father who just brought God into the mix.

Hit me up on Twitter for more WTF updates.
