Starting over, Bermuda lawn

Well I've been lurking for awhile and now feel the need to post my adventure.
I'm 2 1/2 weeks into a new Bermuda lawn after I killed off and tilled my old lawn that was taken over by whatever this is:

Best I could tell was a "clumping" Fescue...anyway a real pain to get rid of and I have no idea where it came from.
I started mid May and killed off the existing lawn, Glyphosate and a little fire:

Tilled it up multiple times...a Mantis tiller and the AZ heat, what fun:

I honestly could not have picked a hotter time in the season to do this but I felt compelled for the dogs sake, he misses his lawn (last year photo lawn not so pretty which led to this):

Over to for their suggested SS2000:

2 weeks in during 100+ degree weather here I am:

Now for the questions...
What is this (the tall blade)? Should I pull them or is it one of the 3 blended Bermuda grasses:

I have this stuff showing up all over the place how soon can I treat for it and what would be the best way to get rid of it, I am currently pulling it and it is seriously all over and pops up what seems like hourly:

Any way, sorry for the long post any help is appreciated.
I will do my best to keep updated on the progress of my Hot as Hell Lawn rehab.

Unfortunately you're going to be stuck with the weeds for a while and that spurge is going to be a real bitch to get rid of. I have the same thing going on in my Bermuda and even after spraying Celsius at the medium rate some of the spurge survived. However quinclorac can be sprayed for crabgrass pretty much any time (except I think it will kill your Yukon) and certainty will easily take care of the sedges. As to your grass seed, I considered getting the same thing but the price was too much, didn't want to spend $$$ on something I wasn't sure was going to work since I was new to the lawn care game.
