On any level of football you play, when your arms are outside of the pads ITS A HOLD.

The time would not have been reset. It would've been 4 seconds and a safety kick. the EXACT same thing that happened without the penalty. Refs did no wrong there.
That's not the point. The call can't not be made because it wouldn't have matter either way. It was holding, no flag was thrown. It didn't cost us the game, twice having first and goal in the game and only coming away with three points was bigger. But that flag not being thrown is a reason why the officiating is under such criticism.
