I am not an expert but it looks like quack grass to me.

It looks alot like quack but the seedhead doesn't match up.

Looks like goosegrass to me. Are the stems flat instead of round?

And you thought everyone would know this. I believe we have the same thing up here in Wisconsin. I do not know what it is other than a grassy weed. We pull a little by hand where it makes sense. And hit the others with Quinclorac.

I see it so often I figured everyone but me knew what it was, I've seen certain pics of yellow nuts edge that match up except for the seedhead

It looks what I've always called Bull Paspalum.

I think you've got it! Seems MSMA knocks it but what do you use on St Aug or Centipede?

Seems Celsius at the Med rate works on it. May need multiple apps according to label. Anyone have experience with trying to eliminate this?

I treat very little of either. However, I do treat some so I have to know what can and can't be used on them. As you said, MSMA does a number on it but will damage the turf. It will also take multiple apps of MSMA since it's a perennial like another member of the paspalum family...Dallisgrass. When I see it, I either dig it out or hit it with Glyphos and try to keep the spray localized to minimize damage to the turf. The glyphos will get it in one shot. Wish I could offer a better solution.

As I've said before you're kinda lucky you don't have to deal with St Aug or Centipede on a large basis. I see a lot of this papspalum in thin turf, maybe my sandy soils are a factor as I've read. I guess I will use Celsius as a go to for this on centipede or st aug.

Getting any rain yet?

We've gotten a little rain. We've gotten 2 rains in the past 3 weeks that were about a half inch each. Not what we need but I'm happy to see any.That makes about 1.25 inches in the last 4 months. This next week will be cooler. 95-98 every day instead of 103-108. 40% chances of rain next Sunday & Monday too. Hopefully the start of a better trend...
