Disregarding the traditional dialect of the local area, the University of Georgia's gymnastics team is sporting the slogan "Back 4 more" as it enters the NCAA meet this weekend, hoping to win its fourth consecutive national championship.

(The pun--which was not at first obvious to me--merges "four" and "for.")
