    Can you do detailed looks at the gyoji's kimono? A bunch have kanji or symbols on them that it would be nice to know about. A few have big embroidered stuff on the back---it seems like a nice little window into the personality of the gyoji that we usually don't get. (I seem to recall that some are hand-me-downs as well--is that still true?)

    There's a *much* bigger difference between 7 and 8.

    In retrospect my guess is that it was for the Emperor. 10. Hokutofuji

    9. Hokutofuji with low probability.

    Acceptable Ozeki Record?

    Ok, I'm going to say this again, this time with numbers. I just pulled up the last 100 KKs at M7, an arbitrarily chosen rank. The average number of wins amongst that group is 9.17. You will find roughly the same number all the way down to J14. (The Sekiwake over the same time period have slightly more KK, and a slightly higher average number of wins per KK--9.52. This is still not a useful metric.)

    Acceptable Ozeki Record?

    Of course the average result for a KK Sekiwake is better than 8 wins--it literally has to be. "Sometimes they do better than the worst result in the dataset" is the only thing you can say from that number.

    The five-year-ish run of Kise in the lower joi is something that may be a while in replication, but we've got some new contenders on the way. I have no faith in Ichinojo's ability to get up to Ozeki, and he seems like he's stuck in good in the joi at this point...
