Weebles wobble, but they don't fall down.

Although on the evidence of 2020 results you could never rule it out, I'd be very surprised if gets promoted.  Asanoyama, if he gets his act together, is the better long-term bet.

for me it depends to a big part whether Hakuho will take part or not (the whole Basho)

The percentage of responses for "next basho", 21.05%, almost exactly matches the rate at which Ozeki have converted a yusho in one basho into Yokozuna promotion after the very next basho in the six-basho era (14 of 66 times, 21.21%).

its not bad to post here because its not outdated until takakeisho has retired or a yokozuna has been promoted.

I could see a yusho this month followed by promotion. But I just as easily see a 10-5 basho. So I voted soon but not yet. He’s good and given the fact that there isn’t much other consistent competition at the top I think he’ll put together back to back yusho at some point soon.

He could still be the next yokozuna...no earlier than July now.

He'll get the rope by beating Hakaho but when (Scratchingchin...)

i know its frowned upon to quote old posts but i saw this and thought he will never fight hakuho because hakuho won't show up (but the kak is worse).

Predicting the future is such a rough game...

I think if Terunofuji gets the yusho in the next basho, they will have to promote him, and I suspect that he will win that third in a row. But, as we all know, predicting the future is rough and entertaining.

Indeed, when I suggested that, I certainly didn't foresee Asanoyama's current difficulties which will well and truly derail his bid for yokozuna.

No question. I suspect he'll get back to sanyaku after the penalty, of course, but they might hold this against him for long while as far as getting the rope is concerned.

As far as prognostication goes, I think you know I was only playfully giving you a hard time. Nobody saw that one coming. It would have been easier to predict Tokushoryu's yusho.

This time has really allowed doubts to grow. I'm not certain he'll ever get it. But, he's still young, and if he can learn how to deal with matches where his initial push after the tachiai doesn't work, he could do it.

It looks like the answer to this poll is a no...
