    Meh. If Takakeisho comes back to win a 12-3 yusho here and (probably) doesn't get promoted, it won't be because of whom he lost to this time, it'll be because he lost the playoff to Abi last time. That's the kind of match that matters for an ozeki's tsuna bonafides (beyond the trivial fact that he missed out on the yusho because of it), not some random Day 2 loss to somebody like Tobizaru.

    Edit: It's nearly impossible for a Y/O to win a yusho with a score of 12-3 and look strong doing it. But in the end it's still a yusho. That means the core issue is that the other basho in the "run" here also wasn't particularly strong, and ended on a highly disappointing (and one might even say, embarrassing) note. 12-3 Y + 12-3 Y, while historically weak, could be handwaved as "not dominant, but knows how to get it done", 12-3 D + 13-2 Y or better could have been spun as "came back stronger from last basho's disappointment, that's a yokozuna quality". 12-3 D with a playoff loss to a lower-ranker + 12-3 Y just looks like two sides of the same, relatively dull coin.

    Back in 2004 and 2006
    Ozeki Kaio in July 2004, Yusho with a 13-2 record - September 2004 Jun-Yusho with a 12-3 record (2 wins against Yokozuna Asashoryu in the two bashos)
    Ozeki Tochiazuma in January 2006, Yusho with a 14-1 record - March 2006 12-3 record (2 wins against Yokozuna Asashoryu in the two bashos*)

    = No Tsuna (25 or 26 wins not enough...) 

    We could also add Ozeki Chiyotaikai in 2002 (11-4 Jun-Yusho in May 2002 and Yusho with a 14-1 record in July 2002)

    (* and two wins against Sekiwake Hakuho in the two Bashos.... but Hakuho was not Yokozuna in 2006 !)

    At first glance I thought this was a thread about the French President.. Isn't the cookie called a a macaroon?

    Macron is more famous here in France in the blooper with a misunderstood question about Maquereau (Bigfish...)

  4. Day 15
    After Day 14, Yokozuna Asashoryu and Ozeki Tochiazuma lead the Yusho race with 2 lost.
    Today, Asashoryu will fight against Tochiazuma - so the winner of this fight will win the Emperor' Cup.

    Enjoy !

  5. Kyushu Basho 2003

    Day 13
    Hello :-) back 17 years ago

    The NSK wants that Yokozuna Musashimaru  must come back on the Dohyo for this Kyushu Basho . Musashimaru is not Takanohana. He is still injured and should come back on the Dohyo !
    After one week, he declares his Intai !

    After 12 days, Yokozuna Asashoryu and Ozeki Tochiazuma lead the Yusho race with only one lost.

    Today, Ozeki Chiyotaikai versus Ozeki Tochiazuma, and Yokozuna Asashoryu versus Ozeki Kaio.

    Enjoy !
