    Promotion/Demotion and Yusho discussion Hatsu 2021

    Personally, Shohoryu has "name value" to me as one of the rikishi making their (Maezumo) debut in Aki 2014, the one basho from which I made up videos of all the lower-division results, including Maezumo. I remember Shohoryu's name quite clearly as there was discussion on the board as to exactly what the gyoji were saying. It's strange the kinds of things one remembers, as I had no idea who any of the other Mae-zumo participants were until I just looked it up, and Takakeisho made his debut then. There just wasn't anything nearly as memorable about his debut compared to the discussion as to what Shohoryu's shikona actually was. That also was the tournament that Hokutoryu set a record (at the time) of oldest Maezumo participant, and while I remembered that he did that at some point, I hadn't connected it to Aki 2014 like with Shohoryu. He also seems to have a decent career as a sekitori ahead of him, assuming he keeps things up, having only turned 24 in October.

    2021 "Kozumo" Hatsu Basho discussion thread

    The youngsters in Makushita (which I define as those less than 20.5 years old at least Ms15, less than 20 years old at least Ms30, less than 19.5 at least Ms45, and less than 19 at least Ms60, looking only at the month and assuming they hit their (half) birthdays after the basho) are all doing reasonably well. Note how far above that age curve that Yoshii and Otsuji are. Kitanowaka: Born November 2000, ranked Ms11 - 3-1 Yoshii: Born August 2003, ranked Ms26 - 2-2 Tochikamiyama: Born January 2001, ranked Ms20 - 2-2 Anzai: Born August 2002, ranked Ms45 - 3-1 Mudoho: Born September 2001, ranked Ms43 - 2-2 Otsuji: Born October 2003, ranked Ms59 - 3-1 There's also Hokuseiho, Born November 2001, ranked Ms15, not participating due to Covid.

    I don't think they'll skip this. 10. Daieisho

    Certainly it's one thing being the only 7-0. But to have done it against the highest ranked opponents competing is another! Even if it's downhill in terms of difficulty, there's not a lot separating those guys at the top, so I wouldn't count on him cruising to victory yet.

    That was absolutely bonkers. At least it shouldn't really matter now what order they do the rest of the sanyaku matches. 9. Mitakeumi

    Glad to see a difference of opinion this early, but I suspected as much. 6. Kotoshoho

    Sekitori Quad for Hatsu with so many kyujo ?

    The same issue came up in 2011 when there weren't enough sekitori to cover all 15 days of 4 picks. You can either skip entering some days to increase your chances on other days, or pick only 3 rikishi on some days to give yourself at least a chance every day.
