Seeding Riviera Bermuda. Universal Aeravator?

I will be seeding a football field in KY with Riviera Bermudagrass seed in a few weeks. It has an decent stand of unknown bermuda. I have never seeded bermuda with my Universal Aeravator before but it is awesome for seeding fescue and rye.

I'm asuming I need to discharge the seed behind the tines instead of in front? I'm not sure about depth of the tines? Any advice would be great help.

I've never used a aeravator with a seed hopper on it, but bermuda seed is so small that i wouldn't want to bury it, so behind the tine's sound's right. Mixing that seed with dry sand might make it easier to handle. I would go as deep with the tine's as you can while still keeping the soil flat.
