Was it because Makushita contracted?

What do you expect to happen when 76 ranks vanish from the middle of the banzuke but the relative order of the rikishi needs to remain the same?

I don't know if this question has been answered already, but what happened between Haru and Natsu 1967?  Apparently, the bottom of Sandanme got demoted to Jonidan, independent of their records!  In particular, Onomatsu at Sd79 went 4-3, then was Jd2 in Natsu; Sawada (Washinomine) went 6-1 at Sd105, and went to Jd6.  Was it because Makushita contracted?

 

 

They shrank Makushita to its current size, fixed Sandanme to its current size (it was already somewhat close), and also reduced the number of sekitori in both division.  Some guys got demoted from Juryo with winning records and no one was promoted to Makuuchi, although all but one demoted from Makuuchi "deserved" it based on the previous size of the division.

With there being fewer higher ranks available all over the top of the banzuke, closer to the bottom there was a huge shift in where the line was between the three main lower divisions.  Previous they had floated the numbers, and I don't know how they decided each basho on the number in each division, but they were approximately the same before in the three main lower division, and afterward Makushita was significantly smaller than Sandanme.

Somehow the DB has picked up the following nonexistent (and nonsensical) torikumi for Day 13:


Ms30e   Nionoumi (3-3)                          Ms46e   Kansei (4-2)

Not sure if that will resolve itself when the match isn't part of the eventual results.

Edit: I see it's also in Naganoyama's postings, so I guess the Kyokai's web staff screwed up and then fixed it.


It seems this wasn't limited to the website, people online have shown that it was actually a printed error on the torikumi hyo that they hand out at the venue. I don't know if it made it into the PDF versions that are on the site, it's not in the Day 13 file now so if it was there originally then it's been replaced with a corrected file.

All I can think is that someone got mixed up between Sakaigawa stablemates Kansei and Shosei, the latter was Nionoumi's opponent on Day 14.

It looks like this phantom bout has affected the head-to-head scores for Nionoumi and Kansei, which is shown as 0-0.

Right, that's probably what happened. I suspect they actually meant to have Nionoumi-Shosei take place on Day 13, but after the screwed up listing they scratched the bout completely and moved it to Day 14, rather than post a revised schedule with it (and maybe risk Shosei not showing up, because he wasn't expected to be there originally).
