    Ichinojo in 2021 - has his inner fire been relit?

    Agreed, but this is a) fun, b) more probable than trying to win lottery, c) fun

    I second that, same opinion. I say 01/21 9-6, 03/21 7-8, 05/21 8-7, 07/21 6-9, 09/21 11-4, 11/21 7-8

    Non-K-November basho 2020 Discussion (spoiler space)

    Terunofuji was great today, I consider this win of Takayasu as a serious candidate for fight of the year, reeeally great sumo by both men full of pride and wishing to prove their Ozeki stints were deserved and distinguished (and not to be remembered by just the respective ends of those stints) And Tochinoshin, dear god! That was a MOTHER of all kachiage! He did lose the bout, but that impact might have been heard back in Beijing and Honolulu!

    Promotion/Demotion/Yusho Discussion Aki 2020

    Given his proportions, I don't think you can get rounder than this, currently he's looking almost perfectly spherical.

    September (Aki) Basho- offical thread (yay..)

    Asanoyama? I beg to differ. He seems to have discovered something nasty inside, needed to get that rope, but Takakeisho looked reeeeally strong after his first loss, and I'm quite sure he won't fall for henka a second time. As for Mitakeumi, he hardly looks like sanyaku material now. If anyone it's Endo who can throw in a wrench for Takakeisho.

    I think starting by gyoji's call is standard in amasumo, in Ozumo it's deliberately different. But it makes sense, much more than this mess.

    7 bouts in and Onosho is starting to piss me off. I have yet to see him put both hands on the ground and he almost always crosses the starting line. When do "they" jump on his back about his tachiai like they did with Kotoyuki years ago and Enho last year? Sorely needed, at least to my taste

    And all of a sudden its Takakeisho's yusho to lose! What the hell is happening here?! Not that it isn't fun and enticing, but, ya know, after years of things being quite clear, this is very...irregular. I'd say 12-3 playoff yusho, if Takakeisho keeps his current level then maybe 13-2 and tsuna run start. Out of the rest I'd say only Shodai and Terunofuji seem to have legitimate chance to win, with Kotoshoho and Tobizaru being the wildcards.

    I always saw Tochiozan as more like this gunnery sergeant

    Hakuho Weight Training

    I remember Hakuho mentioning in one documentary that he doesnt lift that much, preferring to stick to traditional sumo routine, so this is the first time I hear he's lifting seriously.

    Terunofuji Watch

    Seems to lack power in right arm - elbow issue most likely

    Preparations of the Y/O- Hatsu 2020

    Didn't Kakuryuu mention sometime last week that he feels the end is near?

    2019 Kyushu Basho Discussion (spoiler alert)

    But it's not elevated and doesn't have weirdly dressed middle-aged guys sitting around instead of referees, so not the same...
