Aki Yusho Predictions?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Well, I can almost hear the drums outside the kokugikan calling us in. The yobidashi have their hyoshigi all ready and we'll have the banzuke on Monday. Washuyama and Hakuhonofan set a pretty tough mark to beat last basho in Nagoya, but let's see if anyone is game to give this a go again.

Please pick the yusho winner and the jun-yusho. Anything else you care to toss in is only icing on the cake, or an anchor dragging you to the bottom.

I still like getting all you experts down on digital paper before this thing kicks off.

Yusho: Terunofuji

Jun-Yusho: Takayasu

That's the vibe I get, too.

I usually stick my neck out first, but I forgot. I reckon I'll go out on a limb again.

Yusho - Ura 

Jun-yusho - Ichinojo 

Hakuho intai, Terunofuji kyujo on Day 8. Let the Ura yokozuna bandwagon roll on!

Yusho: Terunofuji

Jun-yusho: Meisei

Icing: Juryo yusho goes to the winner of an Enho - Hokuseiho playoff.

Hakuho gets 46, Terunofuji keeps it exciting with the day 15 match for the yusho but he loses. Bonus prediction is Hokuseiho goes makekoshi.

Yusho: Hakuho

Jun-Yusho: Terunofuji (only because of the social committments coming with his promotion reducing/changing his preparation)

Most intriguing to watch: Hoshoryu, Takaysu (will he be able to mount another run or will he ultimately begin an irreversible decline ?)

Following what my head tells me and not my heart (a Hoshoryu yusho would be great, though)

Yusho: Hakuho, perhaps via another zensho
Jun-yusho: Takakeisho
Ginosho: Hoshoryu
Shukunsho: Hoshoryu
Kantosho: Takanosho

Terunofuji to go kyujo after the first week. Takayasu will struggle, belying his performances at the godo-keiko.

Now to contradict my first statement, I'll go out on a limb and suggest that Hokuseiho wins the Juryo yusho :-)

Jonokuchi yusho: Shonanzak-- oh, darn, too late.

Either I'm missing something (most likely) or perhaps an auto-correct (nah...)? I feel better that Gooogle also has no idea who or what Shonanzak is.

Multiple sansho for Hoshoryu, without even getting a jun-yusho, would be quite the feat!

Yusho - Terunofuji

Jun-yusho - Hakuho

Hopefully after a day 15 playoff.

Takakeisho to make-koshi

Shodai to barely kachikoshi after some slightly helpful final weekend matchmaking.

Takaysu & mitakeumi to both hover around the 10 win mark.

Hakuho: wins one and then loses two and then intai.

Terunofuji yushos.

Yusho: Terunofuji 12-3. Jun Yushos: Mitakeumi and Takakeisho both also 12-3. Teru wins a 3 man playoff that goes 3 rounds! Hakuho pulls out of the tournament sometime in the first week.

Takayasu yusho, Hoshoryu jun-yusho.

Would be nice to see both Yokozuna last til the end but I don't see it.

Yusho: Takakeisho
Jun-Yusho: Terunofuji

Bonus: Single digit wins for Tochinoshin -- this will be his last (maybe second-to-last) basho in makuuchi.

Given the recent COVID-19 infections I'm beginning to question whether the basho goes ahead at all, tbh, but I'm sticking with the above.
