In Nov/Dec 2014, two-thirds of the people doing this poll thought that Ichinojo would be an Ozeki by January 2016....

Those were the days!

Please include your predictions in the comments below, and state what you think the actual rank of Ichinojo will be on the January 2023 banzuke (important for tie-breakers).

Same as last year - he will yo-yo around the top to middle maegashira but his best years are behind him and he isn't getting to Ozeki

S1E

Ichinojo will awaken from his slumber in at least one decisive tournament, probably towards the middle/end of the year.

Easily the majority of us think that Ichinojo will be ranked in the joi-jin, one year from now. His 4-4 record after nakabi in the first basho of 2022 seems to suggest that that is a good prediction.

A bit over half of us think that half of his bashos will end up KK - again, this far into the sumo year, that is looking quite possible.

Everybody thinks that he will get at least one KK basho, as the lowest predicted worst record is '8-7'. The main spread is between 9 and 11 wins.... Again, looking fairly likely early on.

Well, we'll see....
