: The meaning of the term '[f-word] up like a football bat' - I searched for it in your system and it is not here. After some research and some burned bridges, it is along the line of the term "goat rope" and "FUBAR".

Urban Dictionary explains that since a bat isn't used in football (I knew that, I knew that) a football bat represents something truly messed up. Similar to "ate up (messed up) like a soup sandwich," an Army term.
