    Kyujo Updates - 2024 Natsu

    Did you mean the sanyaku soroibumi on Day 15...? That frequently includes maegashira anyway. Or the chairman's greeting on Day 15? Yeah, that will just be done with whoever is still available from sanyaku.

    Sumo Reference Updates

    The kabu status change tag "HCt" looks like it lacks a description (spotted on Daitetsu's entry).

    Trivia bits

    Argh, that's what I get for visually scanning for yusho after I reduced the initial list through sansho by spreadsheet. I nearly included another guy erroneously that way, too... Fixed.

    Kotoeko intai. Now Oguruma-oyakata

    I worked up the hopefully complete (to 1958 anyway) list of yusho/sansho-less oyakata and put it in the trivia thread.

    Trivia bits

    Rikishi who became oyakata after a career without any divisional yusho or sansho (= never part of a senshuraku ceremony). Hatsu-dohyo since 1958, so limited to rikishi who had six annual yusho opportunities throughout their careers, but it conveniently also gets rid of all the years when kabu take-up was only marginally related to dohyo success. Listed in reverse chronological order of becoming oyakata, date in brackets alongside the career-high rank and "k" if the rikishi did leave a mark in the history books by earning a kinboshi. * = never obtained a permanent kabu and left very early (*) = was officially on a permanent kabu but left very early anyway, likely hidden loan arrangement ** = involuntary departure from Kyokai (outright dismissal or otherwise) Kotoeko (2024.05, M4) Hamanishiki** (2012.03, M11) Kasuganishiki*/** (2011.01, M5) Wakatoba(*) (2007.09, M11) Yotsukasa* (2005.11, M11) Kanechika** (2004.09, J2) Daishi* (2002.03, M3) Asanosho* (2002.01, M2, k) Dairyu (1997.07, J4) Kiraiho* (1996.07, M4) Kototsubaki (1995.03, M3) Jingaku* (1991.09, Komusubi, k) Daitetsu (1990.09, Komusubi, k) Fujinoshin (1990.09, M1) Maenoshin*/** (1990.03, Komusubi) Asaarashi (1973.03, M12) A few more than I thought there would be. Among the five guys whose oyakata careers didn't end prematurely, Dairyu possibly avoided that fate only due to Takatoriki's dismissal in 2010 necessitating his becoming the emergency replacement as head of Otake-beya.

    Kotoeko intai. Now Oguruma-oyakata

    Must have been lots and lots of them. One that immediately comes to mind is moto-Oikari, Kabutoyama-oyakata who has been prominently figured in the Sumo Prime Time videos on kimarite. Oikari had two yusho in juryo, though. We've done the "top division regulars / oyakata without any yusho" thing at some point - Aminishiki is the one who generally comes to people's minds first - but Kotoeko's total lack of silverware ought to be very unusual indeed. (The first speculative guess that just came to my mind was Harunoyama, but he had a makushita yusho.) Edit: The two obvious possibilities turned out to be cases, though: Kanechika and Dairyu.

    Also, Quad players have not felt pain and suffering until there's a two-fusen day and they can't do the safe three points because they do have the fusensho winners but no other match with both rikishi still available to select... (BTW, apparently I was the only one who went for it again on Day 3 hoping for Hakuoho to pull out alongside Takayasu.)
