I guess you don’t have the big 10 network. If you did you would agree. 

RBY had great offense that was inferior to SG's counter-offense and defense.  SG was better today.  What was RBY doing, allowing SG to spladle him?  RBY had the energy and he was the aggressor.  Gross was like an old man magician.

This is basically true. Hopefully one or two adjustments before post season changes the result for RBY. 

Great match tonite. Way entertaining.

I didnt know there needed to be a lock for the count to start.

The stalling rules do not use the 'lock' verbiage.  The ref was aware of the common scenario where the offensive wrestler has one or both hands around the defensive wrestler's leg.  RBY did not have one or both hands around SG's leg and it was not considered stalling.

Quote

Art. 12. Stalling by Dropping Down to a Lower Leg. 
When the offensive wrestler positions himself with one or both hands below the buttocks of the defensive wrestler, the referee shall immediately start a verbal five-second count. 

During the sequence, there were other stalling articles that the ref was lenient on.  RBY did not attempt to break SG down from the base position (Art. 15), he was not trying to return SG to the mat (Art. 15), and he was not wrestling aggressively from the top position (Art. 2).

See Stalling Rules - Pg 55 of 109 in the PDF.  True paper page number is 52.

From the last two RBY matches against Desanto and Gross, it is clear that RBY is a detail-oriented wrestler.  Top notch and fun to watch.
