    I'd really love to see him getting the kanto-sho. But I think he needs to get a few more wins, especially with a 1-4 record vs sanyaku.

    Nishikido-oyakata (aka moto-Mitoizumi aka Big Salt) sure likes to interrupt bouts which seem to have started with mutual consent from the rikishi, gyoji and everyone else.

    And two ozeki kadoban.

    The forum is back!

    Makes you realize how much you miss it when it is down during a hon-basho. Thanks to whoever brought it back to life again. What happened?

    Thank you @Exil. Shouldn't it be in the contract that the ISP is not allowed to do database upgrades during a hon-basho?

    The size of the division was smaller back then. With the current size of makuuchi I think he has a good chance with 5 wins, like M11e Shimanoumi and Chiyotairyu in the last two basho.

    Didn't Ichinojo at least deserve a mono-ii against Kotonowaka?

    How is this possible before day 2 has started?

    @Kaiowaka It was reported on the Bench Sumo mailing list as well, and it is fixed. If you are not on the list, you should be. https://groups.io/g/benchsumo/

    It would be great if you could update the description to point to the correct mailing list!

    Banzuke for November 2020

    There is an unusually high number of rikishi in the upper half of makuuchi at their highest rank: an ozeki, a sekiwake and no less than five at M1-M5. Counting rikishi at M5 or above at their highest rank, the last time (that I could find) with 7 rikishi was Aki 1986. To find a banzuke with 8, you have to go back to Nagoya 1961.

    Not the Kyushu basho 2020 GTB invite - and Results!!

    But if the Kyokai outsourced the banzuke making to you two guys, the banzuke would be far too consistent and all the excitement with GTB would be gone.

    Not the Kyushu basho 2020 GTB invite - and Results!!

    Another look at the drops from sanyaku: you would expect that Daieisho, Okinoumi and Endo with consecutive ranks and and consecutive results (5-4-3) should have been rather evenly spread out but they ended up at M2w, M3w and M7w. I think everyone in this thread has posted better suggestions than that.

    Not the Kyushu basho 2020 GTB invite - and Results!!

    Okinoumi over Hokutofuji? 3½ rank drop from Ke with 4-11 2 rank drop from M2e with 6-9 Everyone here seem to agree that this is strange. Even the winning guess has Hokutofuji above Okinoumi. And no rebate at all for Terutsuyoshi, he was dropped the full 5 ranks with 5-10. I think he is the only one in that part of the banzuke who got the full demotion treatment, if I not missing someone.

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

    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.
  21. Kashunowaka

    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

    Sumo’s newest Ozeki — Shodai Naoya

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

    Sumo’s newest Ozeki — Shodai Naoya

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

    Sumo’s newest Ozeki — Shodai Naoya

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