  1. Sansho Speculation

    All that I was trying to do was contribute to this forum.
  2. Sansho Speculation

    No. I'm not joking. This is supposed to be a fun thread where we can all "speculate" as to which sansho will be awarded to which rikishi. Why are you not able to understand that? Good grief!
  3. Sansho Speculation

    After Day 14: Must have 8 or more wins. Gino-sho: Not awarded. Shukun-sho: M1w Kotoshogiku (9-5) and M5w Takakeisho (8-6) Kanto-sho: M3w Onosho (9-5)* and M16e Asanoyama (9-5) * Conditional on Win
  4. Rikishin intai

    Perfect example of why ozumo needs to reinstate kosho.
  5. Promotion/Demotion and Yusho discussion Aki 2017

    If 5 Juryo are demoted than Akiseyama, with a 4th win, could get promoted.
  6. Basho Talk - Aki 2017 (SPOILERS)

    From June 1906 thru January 1924 each basho had 10 days.
  7. Basho Talk - Aki 2017 (SPOILERS)

    In the 15 bout per basho era, May 1939 - January 1944 and since May 1949, the Makuuchi yusho has been won with an 11-4 record twice. M5w Tochiazuma in Hatsu 1972 and O1w Musashimaru in Kyushu 1996.
  8. Basho Talk - Aki 2017 (SPOILERS)

    O1w Goeido (10-3) will clinch the Wacky Aki yusho if 3 things happen on Day 14. 1st, M3e Onosho (8-5) defeats M16e Asanoyama (9-4). 2nd, Goeido defeats M9e Takanoiwa (8-5). 3rd, S1e Mitakeumi (7-6) defeats Y1w Harumafuji (9-4).
  9. Basho Talk - Aki 2017 (SPOILERS)

    Click off "Makuuchi" in Basho 1. Click on "Sum". It will sort by total wins.
  10. Basho Talk - Aki 2017 (SPOILERS)

    Onosho has 46 wins. More than anyone else in all ozumo.
  11. Sansho Speculation

    Actually, M5w Takakeisho could win the Shukun-sho even if he finishes 8-7.
  12. Basho Talk - Aki 2017 (SPOILERS)

    That would require O1w Goeido (10-3) losing to M9e Takanoiwa (8-5) and Y1w Harumafuji (9-4) losing to S1e Mitakeumi (7-6) and M16e Asanoyama losing at least 1 of his remaining bouts. Then Harumafuji would have to beat Goeido on Day 15. It could happen. Wacky Aki would be wack.
  13. Sansho Speculation

    Absolutely. M5w Takakeisho (8-5) could win a sansho. So could any number of the 13 rikishi currently 8-5. A lot depends on tomorrows results.
  14. Sansho Speculation

    6 wins after Days 10 and 11. 7 wins after Days 12 and 13. 8 wins after Day 14. # of wins/ # of days = kachikoshi.
  15. Sansho Speculation

    Yes, after Day 15. Until then, this is a prediction. OK?
