And I'm not talking about what you're thinking about... no, those Harvard dweebs didn't get beat up in an alley off Quincy Street; they got beat in a debate!
There's a story that should shake up some stereotypes!
On the other hand, there's more to this story than meets the eye...
First off, I'm guessing the cons had way more time available for practice.
Secondly, this upset is due to what many refer to as America's "prison crisis."
Sure, America may lead the world in the rate of incarcerating (mostly black) twenty year olds who sold a quarter ounce of weed to a narc, but without that massive talent pool, this story would never have been possible!
