Sure, at the time we were all swept up in the romance of the comeback, but now we know his level, we can see that that basho was a snooze for him.

Yet he failed to go perfect in Juryo two basho before that, and wasn't back to full championship form immediately after that yusho either. I think there was a certain element of reconditioning in his comeback and he was still getting used to fighting 15 days. 

If there was a gimme it lies more in the fact that the Natsu basho was cancelled, IMO. That gave everyone carrying serious injuries a disproportionate chance to rest relative to the rest of the field: look at Takayasu and Tochinoshin.

You make a point, but that second Juryo basho looks like the outlier now. His only other duff basho was his post-yusho kyujo where he was obviously nursing some injury. Otherwise, he’s been basically unbeatable since his return to upper Makushita.

Why is the poll closed to new votes? I don’t remember putting a deadline on it.

Re-opened. I was unhelpfully trying to be helpful. (Wearingapaperbag...)

Hehe. No worries. I thought my tech-addled brain had just messed up how to make a poll.
