Video: South Carolina fans go wild after beating Florida
Columbia, home of the University of South Carolina, is a classic example of a southern college town. When the Gamecocks beat SEC East rival Florida to advance to the Final Four, this normally quiet town went absolutely wild.
Can you blame them?

In a town that’s most famous for football, these students were understandably shocked when their basketball team, which hadn’t won an NCAA Tournament game since 1973, advanced to the Final Four.
Party on, South Carolina. Party on.
