    Shodai is only the third Ozeki to have 1 win by day 9 and the previous two don't count as they were in 1909 and 1915 when the basho was only 10 days. Also, they included kyujo. Shodai is therefore the first ever Ozeki to makekoshi on day 9. http://sumodb.sumogames.de/Query_bout.aspx?show_form=0&day=9&rank1=O&wins1=1

    Maybe the most important point of all, yes: the spectre of a makekoshi. Okay, he's got a three-loss margin of error, but even 7 defeats before kyujo would taint his reputation. Stepping out with 4 losses still leaves enough reasonable doubt about the possibility that he could have ended on double-digits if he were healthy. Going on says he felt he could compete (i.e. no health issues) but flopped. Not a good look for a Yokozuna.

    I think Ochiai might not be qualified to take part in the All Japan and thus won't plan for that, he's only 3rd dan right now, maybe he got that rank only recently and can't get to 4th immediately now - Ichi-nojo-norow didn't take part and joined immediately for Kyushu back in 2013

    The only thing consistent this basho is a shukun interview every day - which means, there was no day where all y/o won

    He has to withdraw. He's nowhere near the yusho race and passes the eye test for injury. Nobody will complain if he gives his body a rest.

    Well, that would let the Ozeki crop have a fresh excuse for sucking ("how can you get 12 wins when there's a dominant Yokozuna??" blah, blah).

    Story of the tournament for me. Ura is less surprising, but I had Tobizaru and Midorifuji down to get very low numbers. They've each been impressive and shown excellent sumo IQ.

    2-time High School Yokozuna and amateur sumo superstar Tetsuya Ochiai has become this year's Corporate Yokozuna. He won today's corporate championships in Ehime, beating ex-corporate yokozuna Soichiro Kurokawa in the final. He represented his dad's company Noda-gumi, and now has a Makushita 15 tsukedashi if he chooses to use it. He is only the second high school graduate in history to win this tournament on his first attempt (after Ichinojo).

    This is about the point where he flips a switch and runs the tables- en route to an 8-7 basho--just as we're all beginning to write his obituary.
