Top 10 Sumo Records Aki 2020 Edition

Recommended Posts

So the yokozuna were absent from the beginning and for the second consecutive basho it became anybody's yusho to win. Lots of younger guys stepped up to keep us entertained, with many frontrunner favorites being Asanoyama, Takakeisho, Shodai, Mitakeumi and returning champion Terunofuji. Lots of things happened and we had some other younger guys step up like Tobizaru, Onosho and Wakatakakage. Shodai was the one to step up and take the yusho, not faltering and winning where he needed to. Not only that, we could be looking at a new ozeki Shodai! Congrats to the man for putting in the heart and effort to finally clinch that yusho! And now my friends, we move on to the Top 10 Sumo Records Aki 2020 edition!!!

So the yokozuna were absent from the beginning and for the second consecutive basho it became anybody's yusho to win. Lots of younger guys stepped up to keep us entertained, with many frontrunner favorites being Asanoyama, Takakeisho, Shodai, Mitakeumi and returning champion Terunofuji. Lots of things happened and we had some other younger guys step up like Tobizaru, Onosho and Wakatakakage. Shodai was the one to step up and take the yusho, not faltering and winning where he needed to. Not only that, we could be looking at a new ozeki Shodai! Congrats to the man for putting in the heart and effort to finally clinch that yusho! And now my friends, we move on to the Top 10 Sumo Records Aki 2020 edition!!!

Most Makuuchi Yusho per Heya

1. 52 - Kokonoe 
2. 51 - Dewanoumi
3. 46 - Takasago
3. 46 - Miyagino *4
5. 42 - Nishonoseki *1, *4

8. 26 - Mihogaseki *3
9. 23 - Tatsunami
10. 14 - Sadogatake *4
10. 14 - Musashigawa *5

*1 - Original incarnation of heya ceased operations, name revived in 2014 incarnation
*2 - Became known as Takanohana beya, does not include 2 yusho won by Takahanada, who was in Fujishima beya before Fujishima and Futagoyama merged. No relation to the current Fujishima beya, ceased operations after Aki 2018
*3 - Ceased operations and has not been revived
*4 - Actual numbers may vary based on sources. Information kept by the Nihon Sumo Kyokai and numbers that are provided by NHK may be different
*5 - Currently known as Fujishima beya, no connection to the previous Fujishima beya that merged with Futagoyama beya

After doing some research, it seems that I omitted the fact that Musashigawa beya (currently Fujishima beya) did have 14 yusho won between 3 of its wrestlers in the late 90s and early 2000s. 

Musashimaru - 12
Dejima - 1
Musoyama - 1

The list in batch one of this thread has been updated to include the stable

Through researching SumoDB, I have been able to get the remaining names to fill out the top ten list for most career losses. Hanakaze is 38 losses "away" from getting into the top 10 list and becoming the first and only wrestler to have not reached sekitori with that many losses.

What a delicate dance that is, to rack up plenty of losses in 15-match bashos without falling into the less productive 7-match bashos

I highly doubt that's a top 10 list any rikishi is trying to get into.

If you look at guys like Kyokutenho and Terao, they had extraordinarily long sekitori careers with many more opportunities to lose, and for a sekitori an 8-7 is a KK, whereas 7 losses for a toriteki is a distastrous MK.

Of course they aren't trying to do that.  It just struck me that the statistics is set up so that losing as a sekitori will run up losses faster, but if you lose enough so you fall to Ms, your losing potential is cut in half.  A year at 4-3, 3-4, ... gets you 21 losses.  A year at 8-7, 7-8 gets you 45.  Even a whole career of 1-6 basho can't keep up with the 8-7, 7-8 guy.

Exactly. Hanakaze is only getting close to the top 10 because he's still active at 50!
