Welcome from Columbia, S.C.

COLUMBIA, S.C. - Welcome from the Land of the Cockabooses, college football's only caboose-turned-party pads.

It's tailgating at its finest.

South Carolina uncharacteristically hasn't drawn sellout crowds this season, and Williams-Brice Stadium has featured big gaps of empty seats in the upper deck for the Ole Miss and Kentucky games in particular.

Today's game against Florida should be the largest crowd of the season, though, along with the Clemson game in two weeks.
