A situation in which things are extremely fucked up, poorly planned, or chaotic, similar to clusterfuck and FUBAR. Learned this word from University of Wyoming Geophysics Professor Ken Deuker while doing a gravity survey in which things were not planned very well. Apparently the word comes from a time that he saw a female coyote in heat being mounted by two male coyotes on either side, a coyote tripod.
With the pope and the president both visiting, downtown is gonna be a real coyote tripod.
