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.
