    Hatsu 2022 Promotion & Yusho blather

    I agree. If it weren't for the (2) guys, I'd say it was impossible. As you say, I don't think they'd be better candidates for Makuuchi over any of the rikishi with a (1 - except maybe Oho). It'd take Ichiyamamoto, Tsurugisho, Oho, Nishikigi and Daiamami to lose their next two bouts for both to have a shot (and not guaranteed even then). As Nishikigi and Ichiyamamoto face each other, I'd say that only one really has a shot, albeit very unlikely. My point is that it's not impossible yet.

    Hatsu 2022 Promotion & Yusho blather

    I wouldn't say that completely. There have been instances of a J5 with a 9-6 record going up, including Ichinojo in 2020. Sometimes rikishi who don't have the numbers for promotion get promoted when there is a corresponding rikishi who has to be demoted. In this case it doesn't seem likely that they'd make it, given the records in lower Makuuchi.

    Guess Hokutofuji's Aite - January 2022 edition

    Ok, I'm bad at day 15 since I'm bad at predicting results (see me daily games performance). However, I think Takanosho will win and not face Hokutofuji. Aside from the fact that Takanosho may lose, he could still win and be given Hokutofuji anyway. Oh well, chips all in 15 Chiyotairyu.

    Not a bad thing, and I need to remember that for GHA in the future. However, it does mean that the potential for poorly performing Ozeki could miss out on tough bouts and waltz through to an easier 8 wins. That being said, it is true that Takarafuji was not completely out of the race, but given that 11 wins was the minimum yusho line, he could only do that via playoff. Ishiura was in the same position and was not given a sanyaku foe. It could be that they really needed a genki sanyaku opponent for Kotonowaka and therefore Shodai, Meisei and Daieisho were out. They could have done Mitakeumi - Kotonowaka, though.

    So, no pressure then. Give me a while to think about this.

    Since Takarafuji was out of the race, essentially, before the bouts started, why not Mitakeumi - Kotonowaka? (They could still do Takanosho - Takarafuji). My guess is that Takarafuji is in the same heya as Terunofuji and thus has motivation to perform against Mitakeumi. Even so, I'm not sure there was a need not to do Mitakeumi - Takanosho.

    I agree. Shodai becoming kadoban was the best thing about this basho for me. I am glad that they take lower ranked contenders seriously enough at the moment, but that means they have to break up a number of intra-sanyaku matches. (We've also lost Mitakeumi - Takanosho). The fact that Shodai's matches get sidelined because he's not performing well enough in the first week, and then gets easier opponents to lift him to eight wins was becoming very irritating.

    Guess Hokutofuji's Aite - January 2022 edition

    All depends on how they do the final intra-sanyaku bouts. Do they do Terunofuji-Mitakeumi on the proper day (14) or save it for 15. I've started 13-0, which equals my best, which I did once before. but I ended up 13-2. Anyway, I'm betting on the change in inta-sanyaku schedule 14 Kiribayama

    13. Daieisho. Slightly worried because Daieisho already has a MK, but I don't see a better opponent for the Komusubi.
