    Nokozuna again?

    My Japanese sumo buddies grow restless...

    Nokozuna again?

    Has anyone heard news of the likelihood of having a yokozuna in the coming basho?

    Banzuke for November 2020

    Yes, astute observation. In reflection, not surprisng as we are seeing a major changing of the guard. And, some returns! Ura - return of the pink mawashi?

    Preparations of the Y/O- November 2020

    I completely agree. How about it, sumo press corps? Can we have a little style? A little panache? Ganbatte kudsai!

    Yusho or Rank?

    Well, even though I'm late joining this discussion, I'd have to choose a yusho, if for no other reason than I'd want to share all that wagyu and other goodies with my heya-mates. What a fun, if totally ridiculous, hypothetical question, though. Kudos, there, Seiyashi!

    Food Prizes

    I think NHK should televise the excruciatingly long yushoceremony, including the award of the giant fake macaron. If for no other reason than I like knowing Pierre Herme is still out there in the civilized world, doing business.

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

    Some excellent matches on senshuraku. Glad to see Enho and Ishiura get a few wins the second week. Shodai was a force to be reckoned with and the new kid, Tobizaru, really made a splash. We’ll see how he does in November, further up the banzuke.

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

    I really objected to the line that the makuuchi rikishi now had Enho figured out. Losing 7 kg during these difficult days doesn't help, but I think there may be some merit to the argument after all. Strong tachiai a bit low. Hold nothing back. Apparently Ichinoojo hadn't yet gotten the word. That one was sweet! Enhou ganbatte kudasai! OK, Enhou banzai!

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

    Me too. I can barely stay n that position long enough to eat a fabulous Japanese dinner. OK, I guess we're straying away from the basho a bit here... I think Asanoyama still has a shot at this yusho. Looks like a very interesting finish. We may see our first makuuchi payoff in a while.
  10. I thought that all rikishi said all three things every time they are in front of a camera?

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

    Quite the niramiai from Takayasu. I think he may have spooked the little salt thrower a bit.
  12. I was so entertained that I went back and read the second half again, and this time rather carefully for a Sunday morning. It seems quite sound. And, quite likely, there are confounding variables. One would hope so... Oh, I wonder if any of the awards committee are also contributing to the VR? Please don't devise a statistical analysis. I'd rather not know. Some things should remain a mystery. I will attempt to refrain from asking questions for a bit, although that may pose a challenge.
  13. There are a ton of online-only journals now. If one wanted to take it to yet another level. Perhaps better to start with a special issue of the Journal for Irreprocducible Results. I could most likely be prevailed on to contribute. ;)
  14. It's not my specialization, but I have been up through multi-variable regression analysis, and I don't know what a Fisher Exact test is. I'm assuming it's a variation of the student's t-test, but I'm not doing due diligence on a Sunday morning, even though I have had coffee. I am devastated by the effort Seiyashi has put into that simple question, one to which I suspected I already knew the answer. If I had one to offer, I'd give you a job on the basis of that analysis.

    Spirited rikishi Aki 2020

    LOL, I would have advised against it, but I'm probably too late and you sound like youmight be curious yourself. I'm somehow certain it must be so. But that may be simply because I usually agree with the selections.
