Promotion/Demotion and Yusho discussion Kyushu 2019

Recommended Posts

Should Sakigake get the nod for promotion, he will surpass Wakatenro's more than 4 years wait between juryo promotions. I don't know if it is an absolute record, but it is worth mentioning. Sakigake's last juryo tournament was in 01.2015.

Absolute record is Hamanishiki who returned to juryo in 07.2011 having last been ranked there in 11.2004 - that's a 39 tournament gap. (Annoying I archived the Banzuke Topics for July 2011 but not the accompanying tables.)

(Table 17) Most Tournaments To Juryo Return

  Rikishi Tournaments L. J. T. B. D. Return
1 Hamanishiki 38 11/04 7/11
2 Dewanoshima 32 11/82 5/88
3 Makimoto 31 7/65 11/70
4 Kotokanyu 27 3/96 11/00
4 Wakatenro 1/04 9/08
6 Sentoryu 26 1/95 7/99
7 Seionada 25 7/83 11/87
7 Hoshitango 5/94 9/98
9 Notonoyama 24 5/50 3/57
9 Kotonokuni 11/73 1/78
9 Chikubayama 11/78 1/83
9 Gokenzan 9/98 11/02

L. J. T. B. D. = Last Juryo Tournament Before Return

From what I can tell, no new additions to that list since 2011, though Ryuden got close with 23.

I hope this guy breaks the record, it was heartbreaking back then.

When are going out the new ranks?

Usually on Monday, 13 days before the first day of the tournament (being in general the second Sunday of each odd-numbered month)

For Hatsu basho, it differs a bit. This year, rankings will be anounced on December 24th.

Should they want to promote Abi to sekiwake, is it impossible for Endo to retain his K1w with a 7-8 makekoshi? From my research, it hasn't happened before (in this case, we can add that an M2 going to komusubi with 8 wins is quite common), but is there a rule against it?

There's no rule against it but it feels really unlikely. Hokutofuji has the same record at the same rank, so they'd have to treat him the same. That means 2 komusubi spots are occupied. But you have Daieisho and Myogiryu both with winning records and it feels like they should be komusubi. So you either expand komusubi to 4 on pretty weak records for all 4 guys, or you just do the normal thing and Endo and Hokutofuji become M1 (or M2, but maybe Mitakeumi goes there) and Daieisho and Myogiryu become the 2 komusubi.

 

In my mind it's not Abi forcing sekiwake to 3, but Takayasu's demotion forcing it.

Some people were sure that's how it works four months ago. I'd say the last two banzuke have conclusively disproven the "it's the KK komusubi who has first dibs on an open sekiwake slot" idea.

That, and the proven fact that Abi gets no respect.

My go at juryo:

Tokushoryu (J1w 8-7)      J1   Kotonowaka (J7w 10-5)
Chiyoshoma (J3w 8-7)      J2   Hidenoumi (J4e 8-7)
Daishomaru (M15e 5-10)    J3   Nishikigi (M14w 4-11)
Kizakiumi (J10w 10-5)     J4   Wakatakakage (M16e 4-1-10)
Mitoryu (J9w 9-6)         J5   Daishoho (M15w 3-12)
Daiamami (J4w 6-9)        J6   Ichinojo (M12e 0-0-15)
Tobizaru (J10e 8-7)       J7   Kyokutaisei (J7e 7-8)
Kotoshoho (J13e 9-6)      J8   Kyokushuho (J8e 7-8)
Yago (J2w 4-11)           J9   Sokokurai (J9e 7-8)
Akua (J12e 8-7)           J10  Takagenji (J6e 5-10)
Toyonoshima (J8w 6-9)     J11  Irodori (J14w 8-7)
Terunofuji (Ms10w 7-0 Y)  J12  Asagyokusei (Ms2e 5-2)
Churanoumi (Ms1e 4-3)     J13  Chiyootori (Ms1w 4-3)
Hoshoryu (J13w 7-8)       J14  Sakigake (Ms3e 4-3)

Maybe Tomokaze instead of Tokushoryu in the first slot, of course. Only 10 ranks down for Ichinojo as mentioned earlier - maybe they'll insist on the customary 12-rank drop since he was fully kyujo and all, but I wouldn't really see it as justified to put him behind Tobizaru et al..

One of the most noteworthy aspects of the the Juryo division for Hatsu 2020 will be the simultaneous return to wrestling there of Terunofuji, 27, a 14 time ozeki, for the first time since Natsu 2018, and Ichinojo, 26, an 8 time sekiwake, for the first time since Nagoya 2014. (Of course that's assuming Ichinojo will be healthy enough to wrestle.)

I can't recall ever having two such formerly higher ranked rikishi in Juryo simultaneously while still in their 20s (never mind mid-twenties).

The post-gambling ban basho with Miyabiyama, Goeido and Toyonoshima in juryo comes to mind, although Miya was already 33 and the other two, while both young ex-sekiwake, were less decorated at the time than Ichinojo is. But yeah, definitely a highly unusual scenario we're going to be presented with in January. (Assuming Ichinojo is fit to compete...)
