    To Yokozuna? No way. Math is just not there.

    I hope he does but the fact that he has sumo style & body size that will be prone to injury won't change unless he takes a page out of Midorifuji's book. Enho seems to be on the same path of Ura on his first run to Makuuchi and injuries.

    Will Daieisho make it back to sanyuku rank in the next basho? Mitakeumi's win today may have be good enough for him to stay at Komusubi. Perhaps, Daieisho gets a third Komusubi spot?

    I am blessed that I don't understand Japanese much.

    I am not surprised. He probably should get used to it. His style of sumo & his size = injury prone.

    Tobizaru didn't know what to do with Enho who took advantage of it. A good win for Enho. Not so much for Hoshoryu who gets an MK. Come back 20lbs heavier in the right places and he will go far. He got techniques and quickness but not enough power/strength.

    Midorifuji will prevail. This makes Ura's loss today painful. I was sure Ura will beat injury-laden Ikioi.

    I believe I was screaming on top of my lung on this thread about Tobizaru. His wins were impressive. Heck, even his losses were impressive (except his loss against Terunofuji). For a little guy, he showed a lot of strength and stamina. If Hoshoryu learns a little bit of that ....

    He is one impressive young pup. Takanosho gets his KK. He is a late bloomer. I expect him to make a run at the Ozeki rank. Tobizaru has been also impressive despite his MK.

    Regretfully, Shimanoumi's run at yusho ends. Well done, Shimano!

    Was that a henka by Ichinojo? LOL. Serves Aoiyama right. He has done his share of henka IMO.

    M17 or bust! Although I want Ura to take the Juryo yusho, I think Midorifuji deserves it. Elvis beats one of my many favorites, Meisei. The great Japanese hope Kotonowak is now on the verge of MK. Come on, dude. One more win.

    Midorifuji maintains his sole yusho lead. The little guy has got skills. He may "stick" in Makuuchi.

    Was that another Izori by Ura? Nice!
