I've learned lately from our learned friends that if you have the "status" (kosho..) you always stay out next basho. Hence, I do believe Kaio and Chiyotaikai will be out for sure as well. same goes for Ushiomaru..

Hmm, yes.

I was thinking more along the lines of how guys like Kotomitsuki, Tochiazuma, Takamisakari, Wakanosato, etc, were doing.

I believe Kotomitsuki had some kind of arm trouble last basho. Tochiazuma clearly hadn't recovered from his injuries, though he did manage KK, and there was obviously something wrong with Wakanosato. The guy looked like he had taken a tranquilizer.  :-)

Of course, Takamisakari also suffered some kind of leg injury as well that robbed him of his power over the final few days.

It'll be interesting to see what condition this group of rikishi is in during Hatsu.

On a side note, to illustrate how bad my Bench Sumo picks were last basho, two of the above mentioned rikishi (Wakanosato and Takamisakari) were on my team, along with Buyuzan, Ushiomaru, and Tochinonada. No wonder I finished 4-11 with the lowest point total of any competing rikishi.   :~-(

As for Ushiomaru hasnt he dropped to the Juryo division,along with Buyuzan,Asanowaka and Tochisakae?

Yes, all these four dropped down as can be seen on the official juryo banzuke page.

As before Nekonishiki-zeki has done an incredible job and once again offers the full banzuke! (Aww...)

So far Kaio and Maru are known to be out. Chiyotaikai I guess is looking to participate, risking is kosho status and his Ozeki-hood.

Taka is anybody's guess, as always.

As far as everyone else, we should know for sure within the next 24 hours or so as the day 1 torikumi should be released pretty soon.
