Haru Basho 2012: Kachikoshi Update

Here are the rikishi broken down by their relationship to 8 on day 12.  Thoughts where I have them, none where I don’t. Let us know which rikishi you have thoughts on. 

Rikishi Who Have Their Eight

Kakuryu 10-1 – Having a hell of basho.  If Hakuho loses one, please lose one, too.

Hakuho 10-1  – Do we have more losses ahead?  What’s the plan?

Baruto 9-2 – Don’t lose anymore and pray that Kakuryu and Hakuho each lose one.

Shotenro 9-2  – Now he’s up against the big guys.  Good luck, buddy.

Goeido 8-3 – If things were as they should be, Homasho would have his kachikoshi, and Goeido would be sweating at 7.
