Josh, Andy and Bruce cover sumo topics and news around the Natsu basho, now just days away. We discuss the 4 Ozeki banzuke, and wonder if it’s an omen of approach doom, the hard-chargers in the top Maegashira ranks, the battle Royale at the top of Makushita, Hakuho’s snub with the ichidai-toshiyori, and the terrible news of Hibikiryu’s death.
Its the first of a two-parter, with the YouTube version to follow shortly.

I predict Terunofuji will win Natsu, but the JSA will make him win Nagoya before they’ll give him the rope.
As far as I know, they do not and would not give the yokozuna rank to anybody who had only been at Ozeki for 1 basho, even with a 15-0.
