Mark Dantonio was the third coach to take the podium on Day 2 of Big Ten Media Days in Chicago this morning. 

Michigan State's head coach opened his press conference with a tribute to former Spartans' punter Mike Sadler and Nebraska punter Sam Foltz. The two special teamers tragically passed away in a car crash in Wisconsin over the weekend. LSU's kicker was also in the car, but survived. 

Here's Dantonio's tribute, from the Big Ten Network.
