    Bushozan is currently 79-79 in Juryo as of Day 8 Kyushu 2022 with a 5-3 so far. That means if he goes 8-7 he'll have an overall losing record, but it might be enough for Makuuchi promotion from J2w. That might be reasonable if he'd ever been demoted from Juryo, but he hasn't. It's just been banzuke luck in his favor every single basho. The contemplated situation actually happened with Seiro, though I don't know if anyone else has ever had this dubious distinction. It helped him immensely to have a bunch of those losses in the same tournament while ranked high enough to not be demoted, as truly awful records tend to always get some luck compared to where they'd end up solely by the numbers.

    Not just the wrong train, but also the wrong tracks - committed the sumo game equivalent of not looking where you're going and ending up in Sapporo rather than Fukuoka. Day 11: Shōdai

    Interesting, though with ten basho it's not an overwhelming statistical set. He's pulled minimum 8-7 KK five of those, one 7-8, a 6-9 to match a 9-6, and a 10-5 which doesn't match the 2-13 klinker. Without the 2-13 he's scoring 8 ± 1, an excitingly boring record. Awhile back I calculated how long it would take to make Sekiwake from Maezumo if you got 8-7 (or 4-3) every single basho. At that rate he's hitting san'yaku in mid-2026, unless someone in the NSK catches on.

    IMHO Chiyonokuni was the most talented of the Chiyo gang, but fighting back from so many injuries he never came to fully realize his potential. Given his history, it is remarkable he is still carrying on quite strongly.

    My man Hoshoryu is on a roll. He is gradually realising his potential, using a variety of techniques and making less mistakes. I hope that this basho will be the beginning of an Ozeki run.

    I was alerted by Rijicho Jejima about Rule 9. Droning rules, which I had forgotten about, especially for droning for the very 1st match. As Akishiki is droning, his lineup has to start with 1. the (R) team, 2. the (C) team and then all the rest in diminishing ranking. I will fix the lineup tomorrow, as I have the right to celebrate my Birthday today! Sorry for any inconveniences!

    Can't we just assume he wanted to be a restaurant owner for his 2nd life after sumo? Not everyone in sumo might want to be in it until they are 70. People have other dreams. Expecially someone like him that only went professional at 22 and has experienced other things in life.

    His 11-4 at M4 counts for nothing, not having faced 4 of the sanyaku he could have. While it's true he mostly avoided them because they were doing awful and he was doing well, generally you need to have a schedule that's equivalent to a sanyaku schedule to have it count towards Ozeki. Tochinoshin's M3w Yusho is a different sort of thing, and he had enough wins over the next two tournaments to only need the M3 tournament to count for 10 wins, which is reasonable given he actually got 14, and he also faced all the sanyaku he possibly could have.

    Mitakeumi looks like a good candidate for a long-term sekiwake. He might make ozeki someday, who knows.

    If the next Ozeki is just Takayasu again, I'm fine with that.

    Dallas Sumo Club - Keiko (November 16, 2022) Hakkeya'll! It's been a while since we've posted a keiko video - we're going to try to get back to bi-weekly videos, but MATCHES ONLY for now!

Apologies for the lack of videos - I've gotten so busy with freelance film and photography (my livelihood outside of the dohyō), that I haven't been able to edit any of our keiko and event videos. I shoot, edit, create and post all Dallas Sumo Club content and it's become impossible as of late with my hectic schedule. With that being said...

    I'm a football freak since more than 50 years, but I'm not at all interested in this corrupt Qatar event. I'm glad the Oberliga Baden-Württemberg (5th league) has three more weeks of football to offer and I can watch Stuttgarter Kickers live in the stadium on their way back to the Regionalliga. Here you can still find the fair-mindedness of this sport which got lost in all top leagues where most clubs just have an army of mercenaries. You may call me a romantic. Ganzohnesushi

    And only one kyujo. A somewhat dubious achievement, perhaps. The good news is that many options are still open , and we can start moving some scenarios over from Ridiculous Predictions to the basho thread. Personally, I'd like to see a playoff between Ichiyamamoto and Abi, to see if they set a Guiness World's tsuppari record.
