  1. Nagoya Basho 2018 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    I believe that as soon as O1w Takayasu (7-4) gets his 8th win, he will withdraw from the basho. After all, what difference does it make if he gets 8, 9 or 10 wins?
  2. Nagoya Basho 2018 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    I thought there was a rule that if a Sekiwake goes 15-0, he gets promoted directly to Ozeki. I'm probably wrong but it doesn't hurt to ask.
  3. Nagoya Basho 2018 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    If Mitakeumi goes 15-0. is there any chance he gets directly promoted to Ozeki?
  4. Promotion/Demotion and Yusho discussion Nagoya 2018

    My expectation is that you will post the best thread on the forum as you see fit. OK?
  5. Promotion/Demotion and Yusho discussion Nagoya 2018

    But you started with Juryo.
  6. Nagoya Basho 2018 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    Who will S1w Mitakeumi face on Day 12? By rank, it should be M5w Yoshikaze (0-10), By record, it should be M6e Endo (7-3). I say, Endo.

    Kisenosato missed one bout. A fusen loss to Kotoshogiku on Day 15 of Hatsu 2014.
  8. Promotion/Demotion and Yusho discussion Nagoya 2018

    Shouldn't Ms1e Hakuyozan have a "(0)" in front of his name?
  9. Nagoya Basho 2018 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    M5e Daishomaru is going up to face S1w Mitakeumi on Day 9.
  10. Nagoya Basho 2018 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    The joi now extends down to M5e Daishomaru (2-5) and M5w Yoshikaze (0-7). Will the Kyokai skip them and schedule M6e Endo (6-1) and M6w Chiyotairyu (6-1) to face the sanyaku?
  11. Sekitori Torikumi Nagoya Basho 2018

    There are no intra-sanyaku bouts on Day 8. When was the last time that happened?
  12. Nagoya Basho 2018 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    2018 is a calendar year. A year is July 13, 2018 to July 12, 2019.
  13. Nagoya Basho 2018 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    S1w Mitakeumi (6-0) has to be the favorite along with O1e Goeido (4-2) and O1w Takayasu (4-2). The possibility remains for a Maegashira rikishi yusho. M6e Endo, M6w Chiyotairyu, M9e Myogiryu and M13 Asanoyama are all 5-1. A different kind of excitement!
  14. Rikishi Status Nagoya 2018

    Any chance Tochinoshin (5-1) comes back after a few days off to get his 8th win?
  15. Nagoya Basho 2018 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    I was wondering the same thing. What are the odds?
