So, I'm in West Texas trying to get grass to grow. I dethatched with a rake and put down some seed, but this is all that grows and it's not what I put down. What is/are these 2(?) types of grass?
Thanks!

Welcome! @ericsjunk!

Forgive me, but I can't see in the picture if they have these little bundles of prickly things at the top of the grass:

If they do, then it's Mouse Barley (Hordeum murinum). We get a LOT of that around here.
