    East vs West November 2020

    Welcome back everyone! I am now posting again starting from day 7. I will have to evaluate what we will do about days 4-6, but most of the field had submitted default picks and we did have one forum member that was able to access the links on here to submit for day 4-6, so more than likely I will counting those days. I will let you know what I do later. For now, please use the link below for day 7 https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/2J69BKN Default template (RECOMMENDED IN CASE YOU MISS A DAY OR THE FORUM GOES DOWN AGAIN) https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/5S6STNB

    Hey everyone! Post your picks for day 6 here, I'll resume posting the Survey Monkey links for day 7. We'll operate as normal (hopefully) and then at the end of the basho I will have to figure out what to do about determining the yusho race.
  5. Shimanoumi is on that winning streak which means I know what everyone is thinking.

    Class Dismissed November 2020

    Welcome to Class Dismissed Kyushu Tokyo/November 2020! We are getting into the final stretch of this crazy year, with new Ozeki Shodai making his way up the ranks (finally!). Will we have our first Yokozuna among our picks for Class Dismissed in the future? Let's find out this November basho! The goal of the game is to pick who you think will go kachi-koshi out of the current field of 65 collegiate rikishi in sumo. For each pick that goes KK, you will earn one win. If that pick goes MK, you will receive one loss. A fairly simple game but you got to know what you're looking out for. For rules please see below. Rules 1 - Pick 15 rikishi for your main team, and then pick one sekitori (Makuuchi, Juryo) and one lower division rikishi (Makushita, Sandanme, Jonidan, Jonokuchi) for your alternate team in case somebody from your main team goes kyujo 2 - Alternates will be substituted if there is a kyujo any time during the basho, at both levels if necessary. If both alternates get used, they will be only for their divisions (sekitori for sekitori, lower division for lower division) a. The exception to this will be if the kyujo rikishi is already kachikoshi b. If the kyujo rikishi returns and finishes the basho, the better record achieved by either the kyujo rikishi or the alternate will be used for scoring c. If two or more rikishi go kyujo for a division (sekitori or lower), then the best scores will be used for that division 3 - You must select a minimum of 5 sekitori and a minimum of 5 lower division rikishi for your main team (in case of a tiebreaker) 4 - You will also select a tiebreaker team of one sekitori and lower division rikishi 5 - In total you will select 19 rikishi (15 main team, 2 alternates, 2 for tiebreaker team) Tiebreaker criteria 1 - Most Yusho won by team members, if same number the higher the division the higher the criteria 2 - Most Jun-yusho or yusho-doten won by team members, same criteria as yusho 3 - Strength of combined records for top 5 sekitori and top 5 lower division rikishi 4 - Strength of combined records for tiebreaker team 5 - Any wins by makuuchi team members over yokozuna and ozeki (*Any wins by Asanoyama and Shodai over yokozuna and ozeki are excluded) 6 - Results of any potential match ups that happened between different picks on the teams (Rikishi A from team 1 beat Rikishi B from team 2) 7 - Best finishes among least consensus picks (example 9 players pick rikishi A and 1 player picks rikishi B. Both rikishi finish 8-7, rikishi B will have higher criteria) 8 - Strength of combined records of alternates (regardless if they were put into the main line up or not) *Added Shodai to the exclusion for tiebreaker 5 Sansho is awarded based on the following criteria: Shukun-sho: Highest combined total for tiebreaker 3 (top 5 sekitori and top 5 lower division picks) Kanto-sho: Most lower division kachikoshi picks (minimum 5 correct guesses + kachikoshi required) Gino-sho: Most sekitori kachikoshi (minimum 5 correct guesses + kachikoshi required) Golden/Ougon-sho: Most overall yusho, jun-yusho, doten picks (minimum 2 correct guesses, kachikoshi not required) Below is the list of eligible rikishi for Class Dismissed November 2020: Asanoyama O1W Kinki University Shodai O2E Tokyo University of Agriculture Mitakeumi S1E Toyo University Wakatakakage M1W Toyo University Hokutofuji M4E Nihon Sports Science University Tobizaru M4W Nihon University Myogiryu M5E Nihon Sports Science University Takarafuji M6E Kinki University Endo M7W Nihon University Tokushoryu M9E Kinki University Enho M11W Kanazawa Gakuin University Yutakayama M12E Tokyo University of Agriculture Chiyotairyu M15E Nihon Sports Science University Shimanoumi M17E Kinki University Akiseyama J1E Nihon University Midorifuji J2E Kinki University Shohozan J2W Komazawa University Ishiura J3E Nihon University Daiamami J5E Nihon University Hidenoumi J5W Nihon University Churanoumi J6E Nihon University Azumaryu J7W Kyushu Institute of Information Sciences Tsurugisho J9E Nihon University Daishomaru J9W Nihon University Mitoryu J11E Nihon University Jokoryu J12W Nihon University Ura J13E Kwansei Gakuin University Nishikifuji J13W Kinki University Chiyonoumi J14W Nihon Sports Science University Yago Ms2E Chuo University Shiraishi Ms2W Toyo University Terasawa Ms4W Toyo University Ichiki Ms6W Kyushu Institute of Information Sciences Ichiyamamoto Ms8W Chuo University Murata Ms12E Toyo University Oshoryu Ms16E Kinki University Hokutoki Ms18E Kinki University Omoto Ms19E Ritsumeikan University Genki Ms22E Meiji University Tsushimanada Ms22W Nihon University Tokisakae Ms23W Tokyo University of Agriculture Higonojo Ms24W Nihon Sports Science University Fukai Ms25E Toyo University Asagyokuseki Ms27W Kinki University Ito Ms35W Tokyo University of Agriculture Aozora Ms36W Asahi University Kawamoto Ms39W Takushoku University Shiba Ms40W Nihon University Horyuyama Ms48E Toyo University Takaryu Ms57E Takushoku University Tanabe Ms59W Kanazawa Gakuin University Kainoshima Ms60W Senshu University Mifuneyama Sd16W Kyushu Institute of Information Sciences Sagatsukasa Sd19W Toyo University Sakurai Sd30E Nihon Sports Science University Tomokaze Sd35W Nihon Sports Science University Mitotsukasa Sd43W Senshu University Kijuin Sd45W Nihon University Hozan Sd84W Chuo University Hatooka Sd97E Takushoku University Hagiwara Jd8W Takushoku University Kaonishiki Jd26E Toyo University Katozakura Jd39W Kokugakuin University Osuzuki Jd55W Nippon Sports Science University Arikawa Jk6W Senshu University Please submit your picks via the Survey Monkey link that will be posted. You may also post your picks here, submit them to me by PM, or email them to me at bloodpact725@gmail.com. I recommend everyone use Survey Monkey to help streamline everyone's picks, and this encourages non-forum players and also forum players to participate in this game more! Please submit your picks by 8am shonichi JST (11/8), or 3PM PST Saturday (11/7). If you need to declare kosho, please use the same communication methods with the same deadlines in mind. Thanks as always!

Athenayama also scored a kinboshi in the bonus game as he was the only one to get a bullseye on the number of matches that the winning side scored. This gives him a TB advantage. Let's see what day 2 gives us!
  13. My favorite match for day 1 was Tokushoryu vs Terutsuyoshi. The yusho wasn't taking any of Teru's shenanigans, and won the match with a huge shove of Teru to the clay by Tokushoryu. Kotoshoho got caught off guard by the veteran Takarafuji, while we had a great torinaoshi of Mitakeumi and Onosho. The ozeki get through on day 1, with Shodai barely getting it against Wakatakakage. Glad that Ura also got his win, looked solid too. I think if Geek starts 0-3, he'll hang it up. Sad to see him go.

    Rikishi Status - 2020 November Basho

    Spondyloisthesis is not a fun thing to get injured on. Because of this I suffered a fracture in one of my vertebra in middle school. I still live with it today because it's not something that 100% heals
