You seem to ignore all that, and make some argument for how the Gs and buffer they felt apparently threw them off too much to know they were stalled.
A video does not show sensations and the report, while good, missed many aspects that explain why they did what they did. I realize it makes us feel good to think we would not have done that, but sadly if you believe that, we have done nothing to prevent a repeat aside from install better pitots. Sad.
