I have tried to be mindful of not rotating so much; and even tried the "keeping one goggle wet" approach. I am taking in water up my nose and in my mouth with this approach; I then dug out a noseclip I had in the bottom of my bag to see if I could at least cure the water up the nose. This cured water up the nose but only created more problems with my mouth because I not only have to exhale with my mouth only, but I have to be quick enough to inhale with my mouth before I start exhaling with my face in the water. This took me back to the over-rotation. Is there some sort of groove or trough that you can make with your stoke pattern to take in air with having your mouth barely out of the water?

I dont know if this has been mentioned in this thread so here goes.
The trick wheather you use a nose clip or not is to breath out while your face is in the water and so all you have to do when the nose/mouth is above water is inhale. Using this method there is lots of time to inhale. Success is just around the corner.
May we swim with ease at the speeds we choose.
