Tachiai Natsu Video Podcast – Banzuke And Predictions

After an earlier upload problem, which resulted in a video with Team Tachiai goofing around and cutting up, the REAL youtube presentation of our May banzuke and prediction video is finally ready. Its Andy, Josh and Bruce again, and this time we focus further down the banzuke. We cover Wakatakakage, Tobizaru, the “redemption” wave from Terunofuji, Ura and Murata, and we discuss if Chiyonokuni will actually start this tournament following his kyujo in March. We round out the show with our always regrettable predictions. It’s 27 minutes of your life you will never get back, so spend them with us as we talk bout sumo.

  1. Hakuho, Aoiyama, Ryuden and Midoridfuji are all going to be absent from the upcoming basho day 1. Any news on why the three lower rankers are sitting out? We all know why Hakuho is kyujo.

    • According to Chris Sumo, Ryuden is being punished for violating COVID protocols. This is the first I’ve heard that Aoiyama and Midorifuji are out. In Midorifuji’s case, but I’m hoping his absence is due to getting his hernia repaired.
