It seems that when I make the effort to rotate on my foot I'm going way right. When I'm not rotating and just using my knee and hip I'm just coming up short. This has been going on for a few rounds and has got me pretty bothered.

I have thrown thousands and thousands (and more thousands) of standstill upshots between 75-200'. Btw, I love this kind of shot and I expect to throw it well consistently. I don't have the slightest idea how my plant foot rotates. Why would I worry about my plant foot? I have a secure base so my attention is far away from my feet.

How about your elbow on your non-throwing arm? What is it doing?

Perhaps you should concentrate on what matters to the shot?

The foot pivot should be incidental. If you have to think about it to make it happen, then something else is wrong with your form or timing.

I'm blaming my poor drives lately to my boots also! I'll take any excuse I can get.
