    2021 "Kozumo" Hatsu Basho discussion thread

    Yeah, Daieisho has been thoroughly convincing in this tournament. I hope he maintains his composure and wins all 15 bouts.

    Ridiculous Predictions January 2021 basho

    Takakeisho pushes his way to the yusho, with a 12-3 score and is promoted to yokozuna.

    YDC convenes after November 2020

    Whether or not an aging athlete dealing with injuries and/or surgeries are physically ready to compete at the highest level should increasingly depend on the assessment of sport medicine experts and physicians. I think YDC assessments make sense for the most part, but they generally seem to lack the information or understanding of that aspect of sports performance and have been rightly criticized for it over the years.

    Kotoshogiku retires

    He really gave everything that he had left in him this Basho. Immense heart and spirit.

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

    - Kotoshogiku at J3 after 15+ years in the top division

    Enho - predictions?

    I think some of that concern might stem from thoughts of yoritaoshi and similarly brutal landings against larger men.

    Promotion/Demotion and Yusho discussion Haru 2020

    Congratulations to the new Ozeki!

    Haru 2020 Basho Discussion (SPOILERS)

    I think the judges made the right call. It was close, but it was conclusive.

    Haru 2020 Basho Discussion (SPOILERS)

    I tend to agree, but It's still too early to celebrate. He has 2 challenging bouts ahead of him..

    Haru 2020 Basho Discussion (SPOILERS)

    It's amusing how often rikishi are completely caught off guard against Chiyoshoma's henka, usually toward his right side.

    Goeido to Retire

    I cheered for Goeido, and I don't really mind his decision to forego an extended career in the maegashira ranks. It seemed like he had been struggling with health and injury for a while.

    Hatsu 2020 Basho Discussion (SPOILERS)

    That was beautiful. Tears of joy. The man worked his entire career to get to this point. Well done.

    Hatsu 2020 Basho Discussion (SPOILERS)

    Toyonoshima seems fit enough to continue fighting, so he might just try work his way back up from the 3rd division again if he still has the will to compete.

    Yoshikaze situation

    So that's how he injured himself. It's truly surprising and unexpected. Most of us might have guessed it was a sumo training incident of some kind.

    2019 Aki Basho Discussion (spoiler alert!)

    Yeah, it might be uncommon, not completely unexpected. Homasho and Tochinoshin did it once in 2014.
