    Kotoeko intai. Now Oguruma-oyakata

    How many coaches have there been without a single division title or sansho? I doubt he's the first, but with how becoming an oyakata works there can't have been too many.

    I've never seen 元 read as 'tsukasa' before, is that just really rare or something?

    Kyushu 2022 discussion (results)

    We already saw (sort of, at least) that scenario with the Kisenosato/Terunofuji playoff. I suppose it could always be worse/more obvious going into the match, but it sure wasn't pretty in the aftermath.

    Next Ozeki?

    For the purposes of this, are we including Asanoyama as a potential next Ozeki or not since it would a be a former making a return?

    But what if he has a rebellion? Can he train Tom Cruise?

    Hakuho retires

    At least they didn't make him sign it with blood?

    Hakuho retires

    Its crazy to think back to the far off time of Nov. 2010, when I first started watching sumo real-time. Asa had recently left, and Hakuho was already a Yokozuna with several titles. More than a decade after that point in his already great career, its finally come to pass. Even though it has been expected for a while now, its an odd feeling. Curious to see what a couple billion Yen and a goat for a coach can get you though. By my count, this leaves just 6 sekitori from that banzuke (Takayasu, Tochinoshin, Kaisei, Sadanoumi, Takafuji and with impressive levels of doing just enough, the 36 year old Okinoumi).

    I think this Twitter post has the commercial referenced-

    Sagatsukasa intai

    ^ Same, really. If nothing else, I'll always remember this match of his that occurred not too long after I started watching https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6wdBMyZUWgM

    Ryuden Scandal

    I'm not sure if "to be shin-juryo you have to beat an Ozeki" necessarily follows from that line of thinking. The exchange bouts work because to be juryo, you have to beat a struggling guy the bottom of juryo, not somebody well above your current level.

    Does this weird commercial count? https://twitter.com/stooloots/status/1395826041172729860

    Trivia bits

    Interesting career Onishiki had. Following his first and only appearance in the sanyaku, he managed both 7 kinboshi and 3 Juryo+1 Makushita yusho. A bit all over the place.

    Natsu basho 2021

    I'd argue an obvious Yokozuna candidate not making it due to injuries is just as, if not more, sour. We'll never get to see what could have been with a healthy Yokozuna Terunofuji, but somehow we may get to see him wear the rope anyways. Regardless of how that potential tenure ends, I think he'd always be remembered as the guy that made Ozeki, dropped to nowhere and managed to not only fight back but even surpass his old self.
