The ever-present heart and soul of the program. CU hoops won't be the same without him sitting courtside.
Career leader in rebounds per game and points per game.
:sad1: Saw him all the time at the Keg. Rest in Peace Mr. Meely.

The Buffs HAVE to honor him next year somehow. Period.
It's time for a statue.
RIP to a great Buffalo!!
People give lots of credit to Bohn for the rise of our bball program (this does NOT include me), but I say he could have done a little more. Meely is one of our greatest Buffs - this is sad, and I wish the program had honored him while alive.
Here are a couple of articles from today
Would be absolutely awesome. Leave room for future statues.
Just name that statue over by the Fountain at the UMC, "Meeley, No. 20!" It looks just like him shooting a jumper.
RIP, Cliff. Glad you were able to experience the Buff basketball resurgence before you passed.
RIP to a great player and a great Buff
Wow. RIP to a great Buff.
Very sad, one of the all-time great Buffs - RIP.
Sad day for buffs basketball. Glad he was able to see the program change course and have more success before he went though.
I don't cry much but I teared up when I read of his passing. He may have been the greatest CU basketball player ever. But on top of that he was just a very sweet man. Quiet and unassuming and always displayed a lot of Class. He passed way too young.
Wow. That's horrible news.
Meely was actually one of the man guys I wrote about this summer. This is just a reminder of how great he was for this school.
I met him once. He was a client at my family's travel agency. This would have been around 1985 or so. This was the depths of CU basketball. We had hired Tom Miller as coach. Cliff says "miller will get this thing going. We hired the right guy". I expect he was always positive about the program, in spite of many reasons to not be. That's dedication. He will be missed.

RIP Cliff, a great Buff.
RIP. I've only recently read about him, but seems like a class act, not to mention those incredible numbers. One of the all-time great Buffs.
Memorial Service is today at Folsom.
at Folsom? in the stadium?
