Any ideas what this might be?

My lawn is common seeded bermuda. I've got one area about 10k sqft that is covered in this stuff. Any ideas what it might be?

Looks more like goosegrass to me. Doesn't look like a nimblewill seedhead. Check the stems near the base of the plant. If they're whitish and flat, it's goosegrass.

Googled Nimblewill & I don't think that's it. It's not Goosegrass because I've got some of that too. I don't remember having this issue last year.

99% sure it's goosegrass (Eleusine indica) judging by the seed pods... Does it grow in clumps?

I have quite a bit of mature goose grass in the area too. The stems are much thicker and are white/yellow at the base. Maybe this just hasn't matured yet?

Looks like Poa in the early seeding stage to me also. But this time of year?
