    Not the Kyushu basho 2020 GTB invite - 130 entries

    And with 130 players very close to a new record number of participants! Just two off Natsu 2006.

    Not the Kyushu basho 2020 GTB invite - 130 entries

    You should update the GTB graph, considering how many entries there have been lately.

    Sumo’s newest Ozeki — Shodai Naoya

    We are only joking about your predictions because we love you, Kinta-zeki...

    Sumo’s newest Ozeki — Shodai Naoya

    Yes, and there are people - in this very thread! - who'll gladly put the next-ozeki stamp on rikishi who have just gone 8-7 in their makuuchi debut. Edit: although, he didn't say "quickly" this time.

    Sumo’s newest Ozeki — Shodai Naoya

    Yes, of course it's one man's opinion, just like Kintamayama's next-ozeki prediction. It's not the only place on the old Sumoweb site where Tosanoumi is mentioned as a one-time ozeki candidate, but I'll leave that as an exercise for the curious reader.

    Sumo’s newest Ozeki — Shodai Naoya

    Not everyone debuts in makuuchi as M7 and have to face an ozeki and a yokozuna day 1-2... Once upon a time there was a bi-monthly column called Rikishi Report. Excerpt from Natsu basho 1999: http://web.archive.org/web/20020808031642/http://www.sumoweb.com/rikishi_report/rr22.htm

    And Tosanoumi, Tochinonada, Akinoshima... the guys who could beat anyone or lose to anyone on any given day. What would sumo be without them?

    I'd be surprised to see *anyone* string together 3 successful basho for an ozeki return. It's only happened once before.

    It's actually his 4th basho in makuuchi, day 2. So your memory is about right @RabidJohn.

    Now is the time for you to do a Terunofuji. Gambatte!

    September (Aki) Basho- offical thread (yay..)

    Nah, as a former ozeki he doesn't qualify for the Next Ozeki moniker.

    September (Aki) Basho- offical thread (yay..)

    The next ozeki? Takanosho, obviously.

    Sort of new

    I am out of reactions so I'll just say welcome!

    Promotion/Demotion/Yusho Discussion Aki 2020

    Could you then say - avoiding the double negative - that Miyabiyama's approval was animous?

    Promotion/Demotion/Yusho Discussion Aki 2020

    Regarding 32 wins and ozeki promotion: out of 26 promotions in the last 30 years, 4 were after 32 wins and 3 of those in the 2010s. Shodai's case with 8-7 / 11-4 / 13-2Y is arguably stronger than 32-winners Kisenosato, Goeido and Asanoyama because of that yusho and going 13-2, which neither of the others did in their ozeki runs. It resembles Chiyotaikai's 9-6 / 10-5 / 13-2Y in 1999 a lot. If you get the chance to promote a sekiwake after a 13-2 yusho, you take it.
