Wierd Brown/Red patches in field

Hello everyone,

I'm new to the site! Hopefully someone can come up with a solution to my problem. This early spring I noticed these large brown patches popping up in my field here in Haslet Tx. I have included a few pictures below.
The tips of the grass have this dark red tent to it. Some of the grass is kinda stringy. I don't fertilize my field, just mowing only around 4" every 2-3 weeks.

Now it's fall and ONLY the areas that had the brown patches this spring and summer are now growing this long brown looking weed.

Can anyone identify what this is?

You need to post a close up picture of the whole plant you want to identify, as close as the picture of your grass.
