Is this bermuda or crabgrass.. or another weed? I just want to know how to get rid of it. It's invading my centipede.

Welcome to NGA! It's definitely not Bermuda, but I'm not sure of the ID.

The leaves have parallel veins making me think of Plantain.

It looks like it could be that. Here is a map of where it exists.

Thank you. It looks very much like it could be the blanket grass. It's got such broad leaves and its crawling everywhere in my yard. Now I have to figure out how to eradicate it!
