I ran into lots of Bermuda grass when I was living in Texas.  My experience 
with it is that unless you want to use a herbicide, you have to remove every 
bit of it to get rid of it.  It spreads by underground runners, so I would 
think that discing it would chop it up into lots of pieces, all of which will 
make more Bermuda grass.

In Texas, Bermuda grass is grown and baled as hay for horses and cows.  You 
might have a good cash crop there...
