Tall Fescue eradication in KBG

I was wondering if there is anything out there that is a good solution to remove Tall Fescue in KBG other than Rounding up and reseeding? I am located in central IL.

No herbicide currently on the market will take out TF from KBG.
Certainty no longer approved.

What percent infestation do you have? Can you dig out the clumps and spot reseed/resod?
Otherwise, you are stuck.

At least TF is a clump type grass. I have the same problem with a quackgrass infested lawn, it is a worse problem.

Simple --dig it out and replace with sod. It easiest to cut an 18 inch square and cut the sod to match.
