    Drinking whisky on an empty stomach to kill something that won't be cured that way is very on-brand for Hakuho.

    Wasn't expecting all of these details! Thanks for all of your effort and research.

    Here's my post-basho makuuchi kimarite video. Thanks to NattoSumo for the bout video files!

    Old kimarite

    Hey Asashosakari, is there any source on the internet that recognizes official kimarite standardization in 1955? I don't doubt that you're correct because you're right about a lot of things on this forum, but I haven't found any articles or anything on Google Scholar or JSTOR that tie standardization to that date. I'm trying to find a "modern" date cutoff for kimarite statistics. Let me know if you can find anything!
  5. If you’re on this forum, you probably know a little bit about how the banzuke is ordered and how rikishi move up and down depending on their previous performance. There are loose guidelines and plenty of history we can examine to estimate how far up a 10-5 record will move you up the rankings. This tradition makes it easier for the committee to organize wrestlers from best to worst without having to start from scratch, and is ideally free from personal bias. But if you could start from scratch, where would you rank everyone in the top division? Plenty of variables, including fusensho, short term injuries, or flukes, can positively or negatively affect rankings resulting in over-promotion (Terutsuyoshi, Aoiyama, Kotoeko imo) or over-demotion (Chiyonokuni and Ikioi, Ichinojo if he misses the rest of Aki and comes back healthy...) Here’s my Top 10: Hakuho, Kakuryu, Takakeisho, Mitakeumi, Takayasu, Goeido, Asanoyama, Endo, Tochinoshin, Abi Whether you feel like reordering the whole makuuchi banzuke, or have opinions about a few rikishi, I’m curious to see your thoughts.

    I like Kotoeko but I don’t think he’ll ever be consistently joi-jin. I’d put Daieisho and Ryuden up there first.

    19 kensho for Hakuho seems ridiculous, maybe some of Takayasu's will be transferred to him?

    I know it's halfway to Aki already but I made a video of all of the kimarite used in the Makuuchi division in Nagoya, comments/tips appreciated!

    Didn't you see the look on Kakuryu and Takayasu's faces today? Kakuryu looked like he got away with one, Takayasu did a funny frown and shook his head.

    Both Yokozuna and the only Ozeki to win won by hatakikomi today. None of them seemed particularly pleased about how they won their bouts. Doesn't seem like anyone at the top is comfortable right now.

    I'm a Takayasu fan, but I'll believe it when I see it...

    Why do people assume that rikishi will retire when they're wrestling through injuries that aren't career ending? Tochinoshin and Tamawashi both have a Yusho and multiple kinboshi in their mochi-kyuukin, and earn > $30k USD just by showing up to the basho; that doesn't even account for any kensho (assuming they eventually win a couple...). As long as they're sekitori, they would be walking away from a good amount of money by retiring.

    Konosuke is the best gyoji, he doesn't put up with any BS from anyone.

    Does anyone know where I can find juryo recaps? I could find them last basho, but I haven't found any for this one.
