Cool season grass will grow at temps cooler than that, thats just the range where its ideal growth. Right now, poa annua is growing on the fairways here.

We always hear about the "Minimum" temp in which CG may germinate... You happen to know what the 'ideal' for CG is, or how long the soil must maintain that 55 deg. mark before the is any real movement of the CG seed?

This is just a guess, but i would say 60-65 of constant soil temp or higher
