They should probably look into doing that anyway. Once the college football playoff starts in '14, they've got no chance at anything resembling a decent TV rating in the U.S. on New Year's Day. Very few US markets will watch the Classic over a college football playoff game.

This would be a good way for them to move the Classic and allow them to save some face. I think Feb 1st would be a good date. Right in the heart of winter and virtually no competition from other sports.
