Their safe space is Lane Stadium

Virginia Tech football players are getting criticism for their behavior at a "Take Back the Night" event.
"They disrupted our safe space."
You can blame the players. But if they were mandated to attend, you must understand they were not in their safe space.
Barring a class conflict, the players were required to attend, said Associate Director of Athletics Communications Jimmy Robertson on Wednesday.
Robertson said approximately 105 players attended and were required to wear team-issued sweatsuits.
“Coach Frank Beamer wanted to show support of the cause and the group, while also using the event as an opportunity to educate our players on one of the many diversity and inclusive events sponsored by Virginia Tech,” he said.
Hopefully the athletic department has learned its lesson.
