I am comfortable with skipping next seasons early spring N for all the cool season types except Kentucky Bluegrass.
We have soil CEC's above 10......So some Ammonical N will be there to be mineralized as soils warm come springtime.
KB needs a bit more help in springtime as it wakes up with it's deeper root system and a big eater, and I would add some N for that round 1 app.
