I guess my thought behind the roller was to try and get good seed to soil contact since it would be broadcast from a three point spreader.....

As far as the aeration goes, I need to go back to find the article I read. It was from either the U of I or Purdue, that said the soil structure greatly benefitted from being turned over every 10-15 years and core aeration was a way to do it...my aerator pulls 4 plugs per square foot and they are 5/8" diameter, so I guess I was figuring that running the aerator through the lawn 4x per year, I would be completely turning each square foot every 14.5 years....
