Ohio State football is the No. 1 topic in Wake Up Sloopy every day — but we cover news, notes and analysis from across Buckeyes sports. Join us each morning to get caught up on everything you missed in the world of Ohio State football, recruiting, basketball and more.

3 more lose black stripes

Three more Ohio State players lost their black stripes — quarterback Tate Martell, safety Brendon White and guard Wyatt Davis.

Martell’s talk to teammates in particular was an emotional one.

“I was starting to mess up a little bit when I first got here because it was rough for me,” Martell said while getting choked up. “Honestly, all you guys pushed me to go. I’ve figured it out, and I’m going hard now.”

Ohio State releases highlight video

Ohio State fans don’t have too much time left to kill before the season gets here, but this should help.

The Buckeyes put together a highlight video from the last week of camp. Spoiler alert: There’s no shortage of playmakers on this team.

William White trying new ALS treatment

Former Ohio State star William White — Brendon White’s father — was diagnosed with ALS last October. There’s currently no cure for the terminal disease, but White is set to begin taking a new drug that could slow the effects.

According to the Daily Mail, it’s the first new therapy developed to help fight the disease in 22 years.

Scoreboard watching

The season is already underway for some of the fall sports, like Ohio State women’s soccer:

  • The women’s soccer team beat Arizona State 2-1 in overtime on Friday to move to 1-0. The Buckeyes play at BYU at 7:30 p.m. on Monday.
