    I've been neglecting my GTB entry to bring you a few new stats. As usual, you can find all the stat by going to my website (takanorappa.com/ichimons.htm) and selecting the Misc. Basho Stats (the menu there will get you where you want to go), or you can click the (much more boring) direct links.- Final Record Counts – This is basho/division stat that details how many of each record (i.e., 8-7, 7-8, 3-12, etc.) was scored. The Divisions are selectable, so you can show any mix you want (one, some or all).http://takanorappa.com/BenchStats/FinalRecordCounts.htm- Leader Counts - This one shows how many leaders we had on each day in each division. Like the above stat, the division are selectable. BTW - Did you know that in Sandanme in Nagoya 03 we had just 1 leader on Day 13, but ended in 9-way tie? http://takanorappa.com/BenchStats/LeaderCounts.htm- Playoff Counts - Another aggregate stat. This stat will tell you how many were involved in a playoff at each division (note: it only shows bashos that had playoffs). It also tallies how many playoffs in a basho. SPOILER – we had a 9-way playoff in Nagoya 03http://takanorappa.com/BenchStats/PlayoffCounts.htm - Jun-Yusho Counts - This aggregate stat shows how many runners-up we had in each division on each basho. Note - if you take Gaijingai out of the equation, the jun-yusho counts drop dramatically. BTW - we had three bashos with a 16 total jun-yushos (thru all division), and all were Aki bashos. Weird.http://takanorappa.com/BenchStats/

    Hey bench old-timers! I'm looking for a couple of old posts to help complete my stats. It appears that some lineups from 1999-2000 (whether on the original onelist .com server or yahoogroups) have gone missing. I need this data to complete the remaining stats for lineup-related data. Would anyone have the lineups (I already have the results) of: Kyushu 1999 Day 4 Hatsu 2000 Day 12

    I hope that you can excuse my tardiness on delivering the ICF results, once you see the updates to my Bench Stats page. Visit takanorappa.com/ichimons.htm , then click on Misc. Bench Stats to enjoy the numbers. I’ve overhauled the site to bring a more intuitive menu for stats groupings (hoping the stats will be easier to find). Oh, and everything is updated with the Haru results. I’ve also discovered the joys of CSS’s nth-child, so have updated the looks of the tables with shadings and column delimiters (still trying to crack the fixed header nut, though, for all the tables. Lastly, I’ve added a few new stats. Fantastic & Devastating finishes chronicle how many times you either gotten to 7 wins, then blew it, or if you got to 7 losses, then pulled out a KK. GBL stats - after pulling in thousands of BS results, I can now give you stats on GBLs! There are two. BSer GBL Stats show how often you GBL, and how many of what type (i.e., 10-winner, 9-winner, etc) of GBLs you have earned. GBLs per basho shows how many (&wgat type) were earned each basho. Pick Stats - show how many times you have had all winners, no winners, an empty/full bench, or even if you have left winners on the bench (plus more). Win/Loss/Active - has gotten an overhaul, and is now sortable. BSer Rank Stats - has , also, gotten overhauled with a new look, is sortable, and adds start/high/low rank Enjoy!

    The latest round of Bench Sumo stats is up at the usual spot. Bench salaries have, likewise been updated. BTW - I'm working on a "how many in the lead by day (per basho) - not yet live. I have it broken down by division, but think it might take a table per division to make it work, as we are looking at 60+ columns with all DIVs represented. Any thoughts on how the data should appear? Right now I have a simple day by day crosstab for each basho for each. From this data you can not only determine how many lead each day, but also how many playoffs (& their size), just by looking at day 15.

    (Cross-posting from the Bench Sumo list, due to the lull) Hi, all. I've updated my Bench Sumo Stats page with the results of the latest basho. No new stats, but plenty to digest. You can reach the stats at the usual location: http://takanorappa.com/ichimons.htm (then click on the Misc. Bench Stats link). Also updated are the banzuke-related pages for the recently released Nagoya banzuke. Look to the main page for that info.
  11. Bench Sumo news

    Well, I am, obviously, not bringing back the banzuke comments for this basho... To answer your question, the following have not missed an ICF: Fujisan, Jejima, Kintamayama, Oshirokita and me. It's down to 5.

    I have another new stat - Bench Matches per basho! I can't believe that I didn't think of this stat before. Besides the posted link, you can get there from my usual stats page, as well. If you have ever wondered how many times that you have gone to the bench in a basho, this stat will answer that. I was shocked by the fact that I have had just one basho with no bench bouts. Pitinosato holds the record of most bench bouts in a basho at 12. Enjoy. PS- I may do the work for how many bench wins and losses per basho, as well
  14. Bench Sumo news

    I have a stat for that! Check out the Count of Ranks by Basho stat. It, indeed was a trickle, though we did drop 40+ in a two year period following the scandal. Maybe I should graph it for even more clarity.
  15. Bench Sumo news

    Legitimate oopsie. It is, indeed, Bench bashos, and not ICFs (we haven't hit 94 ICFs, yet). I must point out, however, that my banzuke commentary is many bashos old (The last being Nagoya 2015). The time-to-number of reads ratio just wasn't worth it to keep that feature it going. I was spending many hours preparing the commentary, and getting just a handful of reads. If there is a big enough outdry (or I get bored), I may update, occasionally.
