    Preparations of the Y/O- Haru 2021

    This sounds like one heck of an existential crisis.

    Promotion/Demotion and Yusho discussion Hatsu 2021

    I'll be shocked if 11 wins doesn't get it for him. That'd be 35 wins across 3 basho, all in sanyaku, with a recent yusho as icing on the cake. They've promoted for far less. With 10 wins though, neither outcome would surprise me. My question would be whether the powers-that-be will take into account worries of him losing the rank to injury again or going on another run of "kyujo, 8-7, repeat" as he did in 2016 or are those things not considered like they would (perhaps silently/unofficially) be with Yokozuna promotions?

    Lower division celebs results

    Someone more qualified can correct me if needed, but I've heard the stable where he resides sort of has an "accept everyone" policy. My question would be more along the lines of "why doesn't he get better/put forth more effort"? In theory he's training sumo every day. You'd think he'd at least get a little better by accident if nothing else. If he's not trying, why keep doing it?

    2021 "Kozumo" Hatsu Basho discussion thread

    How nice is it to be able to describe Ichinojo as "live" for once? Whoever bought him that espresso machine deserves a heck of a thank-you card from the big guy.

    Preparations of the Y/O- Hatsu 2021

    It's not quite a foregone conclusion that Takakeisho will be yokozuna, but I'll be surprised if it doesn't happen.

    Terunofuji - is it his time to shine?

    He either makes Ozeki or his knees fail him again or both. I'll be optimistic and say he makes Ozeki but has to go kyujo for at least part of one basho. One yusho, one jun-yusho.

    Terunofuji - is it his time to shine?

    First question says Ichinojo instead of Terunofuji.

    Hakuho - 17th annual poll!

    One yusho, no zensho, 14 win streak, 33-34 total wins, retires in August 2021.

    Makunouchi yushos in 2021

    I'll give Hakuho two, Takakeisho one (he'll likely be yokozuna by the time that happens), Terunofuji one (we'll say he does it at Sekiwake), one for Ozeki Asanoyama, and.... Let's go crazy and give one to Takanosho at Komusubi.

    They're both looking pretty lively in that pic; bet the house on an Aoiyama yusho?
