    Preparations of the masses- November 2020

    It's been forever since a makuuchi debutante got a hard drubbing back to juryo.

    Yoshikaze situation

    Nakamura-beya's gonna need a lot of money. Hopefully this doesn't affect the supporters he already has.

    Preparations of the Y/O- November 2020

    I hope Kakuryu can at least show up. I'll be depressed if he has to intai, but even moreso if his last ever bout was falling on his ass.

    New Juryo- November 2020

    I guess this means Fujiazuma and Azumaryu keep their sekitori status.

    Videos Aki Basho... 2003

    Akebono looks even huger in business attire.

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

    It's also been a time of fresh makuuchi youngsters free-falling all the way into makushita. Tomokaze, Yago, Takagenji, and now Daishoho

    To his credit, Tobizaru made a better final obstacle than Mitakeumi looks like he would've.

    Even his pre-bout rituals had an air of sadness and resolve. It's looking very likely.

    Shodai wouldn't face Tobizaru tomorrow though, right? Because of his rank privilege, they won't match him up with a lower-ranked chaser. Like how Ichinojo never fought Hakuho in Haru 2019, despite going 14-1.

    I remember earlier this year when he did that joyful little jump, and ran gleefully up the hanamichi, after beating an ozeki five years younger than himself. It's crazy to me that guy suddenly has this much fortitude.

    Kaisho with a deep emotional bow to the dohyo after his match. I hope a shock intai isn't incoming...

    The champ has left the building.

    Because he doesn't live at the stable.

    That really sounds like a Takanohana habit.

    Oki got called back and spoken to by Onaruto-oyakata after his match. Anyone catch what that may have been about?

    Rikishi Status - 2020 Aki Basho

    Takakeisho catches a break for once. And Kiribayama re-enters from tomorrow. Apparently convincing his oyakata his sumo wasn't too strange.

    I think the answer is he just wanted to do something big, since he's a smaller rikishi. At least that's what he said when NHK interviewed him.

    No way is Asanoyama on any tsuna run. The absolute best he can do right now is 12-3, in a no-kozuna basho. Plus, to get promoted so soon after making Ozeki, wouldn't he need results that really demand it for sure?

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

    All I saw was the slow-motion replay, but that was some terrible hand placement from Tsurugisho. If a rikishi doesn't keep his fingers flat, it's absolutely his fault.

    Ex-Taka-twins activities

    I suspect Taka-yoshi-toshi-goshi-moshi is actually better poised to enter MMA than those guys, Osunaarashi, and Baruto, etc., because he's young, and has shed so much of his "sumo weight".

    Maybe Hoshoryu hasn't completely forgotten how Ura's career nearly came to an end during their bout.

    If Shohozan ends up 0-12, someone needs to henka him like he did to Onosho last time.

    Rikishi Status - 2020 Aki Basho

    Yutakayama withdraws. Asanoyama to get the fusen-sho.

    Rikishi weren't gonna fall for Terutsuyoshi's deliberate-matta-then-henka routine forever...
