    There are very few places in the country where it could be either. Looks like fescue to me, but we don't have bermuda here. Your location would be very helpful.

    Looks like some tired KBG with some pine needles or dead fine fescue in it.

    Looks like fescue .... and if you are in the central valley, it probably is.

    Not any strain of Bermuda.

    It appears to be wide blade fescue with faint opinion on KBG!

    It's just the weedy/common version of tall fescue. I see it occasionally in lawns, not uncommon around here.

    Only cure is to kill the clumps with round-up and re-seed.
