Day 2 results and day 3 pairings

Recommended Posts

The biggest news today of course is the intai of Kyokushuzan, which came rather surprisingly, as the basho just started and he wasn't in immediate danger of falling to juryo. The Mongolian pioneer has been in makuuchi since Aki 1996 and has been a regular in the joi-jin ranks despite being ranked in sanyaku only once as he used to alternate kachi-koshi and make-koshi.

The yokozuna and all ozeki and sekiwake won for a second consecutive day, giving the top seven fighting rikishi a 2-0 start. Tochiazuma had the hardest opponent today with komusubi Kisenosato. Kaio also won against a komusubi, and Kokkai even was leading the head-to-head score 7-3 (6-3 without a fusen).

Baruto is off with a good start at 2-0 after beating Hokutoriki. Shin-makuuchi Kakuryu also is 2-0 with a win against Tamanoshima. The promotion of Asofuji and the Zakura-brothers means we have a record three pairs of brothers in makuuchi, but we are still waiting for just one pair to get wins on the same day as today all three split a 1-1 record. Asofuji beat Hakurozan with shitatedashinage to get his first win as a makuuchi rikishi.

Jumonji won against Yoshikaze in a bout between two of the stronger rikishi in high juryo and it seems like he'll be back in makuuchi next basho. Wakanosato, Kaiho and Tochisakae also are former makuuchi and 2-0 as Oga is the sole 2-0 rikishi in juryo without makuuchi experience. Shin-sekitori Goeido is 0-2 already, losing to Masatsukasa.

The yokozuna and all ozeki and sekiwake won for a second consecutive day, giving the top seven fighting rikishi a 2-0 start. [/code]

Never seen this kind of consistancy before at the top!! (In a state of confusion...)

Antone know when was the last time all yokozuna, ozeki and sekiwake were 2-0 after day 2?

The last time all competing yokozuna and ozeki were 2-0 was Kyushu 1997, I think, although with just four of them (one yokozuna, three ozeki, and one more yokozuna kyujo). No idea about the last time including all sekiwake as well...

...and what's more: it doesn't look like a fluke! They're all fighting very determined and convincingly, including the Sekiwake and Komusubi. Looks like a very promising and entertaining basho for a change.

I agree - they've all shown strong sumo, it's really been a while since I had strong hopes for so many of our Ozeki in a single basho. Kaio's win today, arguably, was maybe more of a slipup from Kokkai, but we've seen Kaio pull this kind of win before. His victory yesterday, against Iwakiyama, was quite nice to watch...

Of course, that means the answer to Torideyama's rhetorical question will be, "Sure they can". (Nodding yes...) For the high Maegashira anyway.

Gonna be another nice elevator banzuke next time, if so.

Now that we have two kyujo/intai, does this mean no more interdivisional matches?

No, it doesn't mean that. The situation now is that now such matches are needed, but later on they will have two at a time on a few days for sure (if someone else is kyujo/intai it's back to one per day, naturally).

Shin-sekitori Goeido is 0-2 already, losing to Masatsukasa.

Same as Tochiozan last basho,give him chance to adjust to the new division before we write him off. (Nodding yes...)

Kaio seemed rather disappointed by the win today. he kinda patted Kokkai on the back, and had this kind of "sorry, man...." look on his face right after.
