COLUMBUS — After another huge week of the Ohio State news and notes, Cardale Jones and Tyvis Powell are back for another loaded edition of Roommates.

On the show this week, the guys break down the latest happenings in Ohio State’s recent push to legalize Name, Image and Likeness in the state.

Cardale appeared in front of the Ohio House state and local government committee earlier in the week along with Ryan Day and Gene Smith, urging for Senate Bill 187 to be passed by July 1. The state of Ohio is rushing to pass NIL legislation before laws kick in six states across the country, putting the Buckeyes at a disadvantage on the recruiting trail.

Cardale shared how NIL would have impacted his time at Ohio State. After helping the Buckeyes win the College Football Playoff in 2014, he played a final season at Ohio State before leaving early and declaring for the NFL Draft. If NIL was around during his college career, he might have made money and stayed in school longer after winning a national championship.

“I think it would have definitely impacted my decision on leaving school early or staying for an extra year,” he said in front of the state and local government committee. “This bill can change the lives of current and future student-athletes and their families.”

How will NIL impact college football and recruiting? What would NIL have done for Cardale and Tyvis when they were at Ohio State? And will the legislation be passed by July 1? Cardale shared his thoughts while Tyvis chipped into the conversation.

That’s just part of what makes the latest edition of Roommates with Cardale Jones and Tyvis Powell a must-listen for Buckeyes fans.

The latest show is loaded with fun and intriguing storylines. Don’t miss it.
