"Omaha Knows" is the SJSU baseball program motto. What matters is what you do when nobody is watching. But Omaha, Nebraska, home of the College World Series, is always watching. Omaha knows how you went about your business. Spartan fans will see the hashtag #OmahaKnows attached to social media posts throughout the baseball season.
