Looks like Bermuda to me. That is very prevalent in this area, and the only one that I know puts out "runners".

I thought it was St. Augustine, but I'm far from an expert on the matter..

Definitely not bermuda. It looks like the type of grassy weed that grows in my backyard very fast, can't seem to get rid of it. I had bermuda put in originally so it shouldn't be there. It looks similar to St. Aug or Johnsongrass

It's St. Augustine. Bermuda has thinner blades. Both send out runners. You can't buy St. Augustine seed. You'll need to get plugs or sod.

Vater, your weed is probably a kind of sedge, also known as nut grass.

You should also know that if it is St Augustine there's products out there for fertilization that are specific to that grass. And if you use them it will kill Bermuda. So read the label carefully.
