The Pokes are going high tech.
"The data show that social media is the top information outlet for fans," said Nick Popplewell, assistant athletic director for marketing and branding. "It outpaced traditional methods. This is the proof in the pudding for The Corral."
The University of Wyoming Athletics Department announced the launch of "The Corral," a social media command center designed for beefing up the relationship between the university's sports teams and fans.
The nine students will then use the information from Tickr and interact and share content with fans.
The Corral is a mix between a man cave and a tech junkie's fantasy. It will be ground zero for getting more fans involved in UW athletics.
"I knew we needed to move in this direction," Popplewell said.
The Quack Cave has a symbiotic role for promoting both the school's teams and its fans. Fans showcase their love of the team, and the team displays its love for the fans, Pintens said.

"As a coaching staff we are very excited about The Corral because it will not only increase our interaction on social media sites, but give us a more consistent look and feel to our profiles," said Bryan Berryhill, UW track and field coach.

The move to jump ahead of the curve on the tech front is a change of pace for the Cowboys and Cowgirls. Consultants recently slammed the university for a "culture of acceptance and validation" that's resulted in sustained mediocrity for UW athletics.
Officials hope The Corral will consolidate a diffuse attempt by the university's sports programs to use social media in the past. Some programs set up Twitter and Facebook accounts with high hopes, but without a full time manager the projects never blossomed.
The University of Oregon has the top Instagram account, the No. 1 Youtube channel and is in the top 10 in Twitter and Facebook traffic among college athletics.
It will stand alongside Xavier and the University of California Irvine as universities that implemented the initiative this academic year. Popplewell expects the number to exponentially rise in the coming years.

UW will be one of few universities in the nation to have a tech hub dedicated to social media.
And they're doing it before the majority of university athletics departments in the nation.
The Quack Cave launched in 2012 and has seen tremendous results.
Tickr can seek out everything from fans' twitter posts during a game to a Pokes tailgate party video on Youtube to a Facebook pic of a Cowboys' jersey being worn in Asia.
The granddaddy of them all is the University of Oregon's Quack Cave the school's social media hub appropriately named in light of its duck mascot.
