  1. BOUT TIME AKI 17

    Day 15 6 sec
  2. Basho Talk - Aki 2017 (SPOILERS)

    Still early to speculate of course, but if Harumafuji and Goeido face off with the yusho on the line, my money's on the yokozuna. I don't see Goeido's pull-happy sumo this basho being enough.
  3. BOUT TIME AKI 17

    Day 14: 4 sec. I'm counting on the power of the sideburns to deliver a victory.

  6. Basho Talk - Aki 2017 (SPOILERS)

    Given Guido's history as Kaptain Kadoban and furthermore the fact that this will be the most "easy" yusho in recent memory (what with almost all of the top ranked rikishi out), I think the only way he gets yokuzuna consideration is if he wins the next one 15-0. Even then I wouldn't be surprised if the YDC said "let's see how he does the next basho." That said, I too expect him to be back to his usual inconsistency in November even if he does win this one.
  7. Ozeki demotion

    It's a good idea in theory, but you have to wonder if half the roster would be absent every other basho.

  9. Ozeki demotion

    He'd be Sekiwake as he is already going to be kadoban for November.

  13. Basho Talk - Aki 2017 (SPOILERS)

    For what it's worth (about $.02), my money's on Goeido to take the yusho. With no strong Ozeki/yokozunae to contend with I don't see him struggling too much with the others. Giku would be my next pick. That said, this basho is crazy enough that I'm not ruling anyone out.
