It's looking possible, although Hakuho has looked much better than I expected. I think he is perhaps favourite to win now. I just hope the match lives up to all our expectations!

Yusho: Hakuho - 15-0 - Goin' out with a BANG!

Jun-Yusho:  Terunofuji - 13-2 

Prior to the basho, I thought this more appropriate for the ridiculous predictions thread.

Yeah...  I really underestimated Terunofuji's genkiness.  B-)

You must be getting old.  Genki was a term I heard a lot during my time in Japan, but I never see it used much now.  It is an amazingly versatile word.

Yusho - Terunofuji

 Jun-yusho - Hakuho

For a perfect changing of the guard.

 Takaysu to fall short of ozeki repromotion. 

Shodai to make-koshi

 

 

 

 

 This might be happened.

Nope(Whateverabove,itisfunny...)

Yes, I think you are right, it's likely to be 13 at most. Teru is likely to drop a couple, a couple of guys like Takaysu and Shimanoumi have good head to heads against him, and I don't think any of the other sanyaku are good enough to go higher than 13. 

 

Part of me would love to see Hakuho go 15-0 lead a collective clap, say "Dad's home" and mic drop walk off though......

Got reasonably close in the last paragraph :-D

Well, we got what many of us were hoping for, an extraordinary finish. If someone doesn't beat me to it, I'll dig through the thread but I remember that several folks called this result. It was the favored, if actually improbably, outcome. It was, indeed, epic.

I wasn't too far off.

Well, the Nagoya basho is water well under the bridge, but just to give the masters of prognostication their due:

Washuyama easily takes the prize last basho, predicting Hakuho's zensho-yusho and only off by one on Terunofuji's jun-yusho. He did also inadvertently predict that Hakuho would be on his way out "with a bang!"

Technically Hakuhonofan would get a tie since I did not request the extra info. You just have to love how close Washuyama was to a perfect prediction though. 

Fukuyamada gets a special note for also calling Hakuho's zensho-yusho.

Hakuryuho and Stelios also predicted Hakuho to lift the cup. 

Really this isn't a competition or it would be in the Polls somehow. I like the open format, though, so let's see if anyone wants to give it another roll.
