Never judge a book by it's cover.
This weekend the Harvard debate team thought they were in for easy victory against a prison debate team. That couldn't have been further from the truth, as Harvard took a crushing loss to Eastern New York Correctional Facility debate team.

Eastern New York Correctional Facility was ready for this one.

Since 2014, the prisoners have been debating, starting first with West Point and The University of Vermont. They won both competitions. Very impressive as the inmates have no access to the internet and instead have to request documents through prison officials.
Harvard, on the other hand, has the world at their fingertips and still dropped the ball.
Seems like they made the worst mistake in competition: underestimate your opponent.
Sometimes ego is our biggest downfall!
@butterflyblu you are so right! hard work is hard work, and intelligence is not a degree. this is actually awesome to see!
