CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- When North Carolina freshman Ryan Switzer reported to training camp in August he was a little miffed to learn he was third on the depth chart at punt returner. "I kind of got mad because when I was getting recruited I was told I going to start at punt return," Switzer said. Rather than pout, the 5-foot-10, 175-pound Switzer went about working even harder to earn the starting job. The 18-year-old not only did that, but capped a memorable season Saturday by returning a punt 86 yards for a touchdown to help North Carolina beat Cincinnati 39-17 for its first Belk Bowl title in four tries. It was Switzers fifth punt return for a TD this season, tying an NCAA record. T.J. Logan returned a kickoff 78 yards for a touchdown, Marquise Williams threw for 171 yards and a score and Romar Morris had two short TD runs as the Tar Heels (7-6) won a bowl game for the first time since 2010. The victory also capped a huge turnaround for the Tar Heels, who started the season 1-5. "Were standing here today because of our coaching staff and our senior leadership," said Switzer, the games MVP. "Those two groups, they didnt let us hang our heads. They didnt let one person walk into the building who wasnt willing to work. We knew we had the talent the ability to turn the season around. We had to have the heart to do it." Said second-year coach Larry Fedora: "At 1-5, nobody thought we would be sitting here today. But these guys kept believing and got it done." Cincinnati (9-4) was looking to become the bowls first back-to-back champion since Virginia did it 10 years ago, but Brendon Kay -- the MVP last year -- was limited to 181 yards passing and no touchdowns. The Tar Heels brought relentless pressure and had five sacks, including one for a safety. "They knew we were missing some starters on the offensive line, and they threw the kitchen sink at us," Cincinnati coach Tommy Tuberville said. "They twisted, they did all kinds of things up front, and our quarterback could never set his feet. He didnt have a chance. ... We expected it, but theres not a lot we could do about it." North Carolina came in having lost its previous three in-state Belk Bowl appearances, but bolted to a 23-3 halftime lead behind a pair of long touchdown drives led by Williams and Logans nifty kickoff return. After Morris scored on a 2-yard run to make it 7-0, Brandon Ellerbe and Kareem Martin sacked Kay in the end zone for a safety -- the first of three sacks in the opening half. On the ensuing kickoff, Logan put the Tar Heels in control by fielding the ball near the left sideline and cutting back up the middle of the field for the score. Williams made it 23-3 in the second quarter, hitting Tabb on a quick slant for a 3-yard touchdown strike. "I thought our defence was just dominating in the first half," Fedora said. Unlike last years Belk Bowl when Cincinnati spotted Duke 17 points and stormed back to win 48-34 behind Kays four touchdown passes, there would be no Bearcats comeback. Switzer turned in another big special teams play in the third quarter when he fielded a punt at his own 14 exploded up the field for an 86-yard TD after several Bearcats overran the punt. "I sold it," Switzer said. "When I caught it they just kind of stood there and I was able to take it and run." The Bearcats reached the end zone on a 15-yard touchdown run by Ralph David Abernathy, but the Tar Heels answered with a methodical 13-play, 65-yard drive, with Morris scoring his second touchdown on a 1-yard plunge to make it 36-10. Fedora said hes excited about North Carolinas future as the school looks to put the memory of NCAA sanctions behind them for good. "We are going in the right direction," Fedora said. "There is a tremendous positive buzz about the Tar Heels in the state of North Carolina." Kay said it was an emotional way to end his career at Cincinnati. "This is not the way (the seniors) wanted to go out, by any means," Kay said. "Its tough. Weve been through a lot this year -- coaching changes, losing a teammate (in a deadly car accident), other ups and downs -- but I wouldnt want to go to war with anybody else but this team, these seniors." NOTES: North Carolina announced that James Hurst, the teams first-team All-ACC senior left tackle, suffered a non-displaced fibula fracture in his left leg. ... Shaq Washington played some quarterback for Cincinnati and scored on a 10-yard touchdown run late in the game. ... Tar Heels punter Tommy Hibbard pinned the Bearcats inside the 20 three times.

Baltimore Stallion jerseys. Easterners adapting to mind-numbingly low temperatures. Almost everyone and every building in the city dressed up in green. These are some of the memorable sights in and around the Grey Cup host city this week, but perhaps the most unique and curious visage of them all is something that is considered blasphemous to many fans of the Hamilton Tiger Cats - one of their coaches is wearing an Argonaut Grey Cup ring. The coach is defensive coordinator Orlondo Steinauer, who was Torontos defensive backs coach a year ago. The reason for donning the bling of the Ticats sworn mortal enemies? "I wear it because Im super proud," Steinauer told TSN.ca "Its a festival here, other people want to see it, some people have never seen it, so you just bring it out." The Ticats signed Steinauer on January 3 this year, a little over a month after the Argos Grey Cup win over Calgary. The Steeltowners hired Kent Austin as their head coach a couple of weeks earlier, and he quickly interviewed several people about becoming his defensive coordinator. He said that Steinauers philosophical viewpoint was similar to his, and that was a big selling point. "Not just about the game," said Austin, when talking about what he liked about Steinauers approach. "Schematically how (Steinauer) views the game, specifically to the CFL, but overall (his) philosophical viewpoint on how to build a football team, how to build a defence, what type of players you want to attract and to have on your team, because the players are going to carry your culture and keep each other accountable." One of the players Steinauer attracted was Brandon Isaac. The linebacker was an integral part of the 2012 Grey Cup champs before being unceremoniously dumped by the Argos early this season. The coach pounced on the opportunity to bring B.I. aboard. "The reason Brandon was brought in is that we were a little too finesse and not quite enough killer," said Steinauer. "We were still trying to find those guys who were going to impact football games and thats what Brandon brings, a little bit of tenacity, a little bit of nastiness, overconfidence, that kind of thing, and we needed that." Isaac relished the opportunity to be reunited with the Ticats DC. "Hes a players coach. Hes a phenomenal coach, he does a great job of explaining things and putting you in position." Isaac continued about Steinauers strengths, "His explanation of Xs and Os, his preparatiion before the game.dddddddddddd A lot of times we know what a team is going to do and were prepared for it. Hes a great motivational speaker. Hes not a rah rah guy, he doesnt yell at you, hes just a calm guy who is passionate about the game." Steinauer was asked by TSN.ca to describe his defensive philosophy in one word. The one he chose tells you everything you need to know about his approach to the game. "Multiple." It makes sense because theres not one defence he throws out there on a regular basis. You may think that as a player who thrived under Rich Stublers match coverage, that Steinauer would use that as a base defence. The Ticats employ it, but last week in their East Final win over the Argos, that coverage was not used once in the second half. Instead the team brought pressure on every down, something the Argos didnt expect. That made defensive tackle Brian Bulcke, working with Steinauer for the first time, a very happy man. "He empowers us" said Bulcke, who played for the Stampeders in last years Grey Cup. "He actually puts a lot of responsibility back onto the players. Hes got no ego in the game, he just loves developing a simple scheme that we can execute and actually take on as our own and thats just awesome." And the multiple aspect of Steinauers defence is something he wears as a badge of honour. "A lot of coordinators come with the M.O. that theyre going to bring pressure, or theyre going to be a bend but dont break, or theyre going to be soft, or theyre going to stop the run, but give up big pass," Steinauer continued. "Were going to do whatever it takes to win that week." Steinauers word to describe his defence is multiple. His head coach wasnt able to be as succinct when talking about the job done by his right-hand man. "I dont think one word can describe it to be honest with you," Austin told TSN.ca. "The coaching job that he and his staff have done this year has been nothing short of outstanding. He has done just a marvelous coaching job. Hes extremely bright, hes very, very hard working, unbelievably organized, he stays on point, he doesnt let the little things distract him, he focuses on the big picture, and getting to that big picture by putting tangible things in place to achieve those goals. Hes just a really, really, really talented coach." Occasionally Steinauers name is mentioned when openings arise for a head coach in the CFL. If it doesnt happen this year, it wont be long before Steinauer is no longer Austins assistant...hes his peer.
