Keeping receipts: From “Saturday Night Live” to Will Ferrell and Time magazine, how Deion Sanders transformed CU Buffs football in just seven weeks

Hollywood celebrities are flocking to Boulder to watch football games. Children in Florida are performing Shedeur Sanders' "watch flex" to celebrate big plays

The Colorado Buffaloes are more than just the most popular college football team on the Front Range. 

They've become a cultural phenomenon.If you're curious about how far this has traveled and how deep it goes, Thanasi "Saki" Mihalakos has a Buffs story to share

Saki Mihalakos is a jeweler in north Florida, a former safety turned coach at the University of South Florida, and a friend and business colleague of the Sanders family.

He was asked a few days ago to speak to a group of kids, ages 7 to 14, at a local Pop Warner League – to impart some knowledge and talk a little shop.

Colorado has moved on from their historically terrible loss to Stanford two weeks ago. 

Suddenly, all of these little, skinny left wrists shot up in the air and began flexing almost simultaneously. It was as if they were speaking in front of a fictitious Arizona State student section at Mountain America Stadium.

"They were going crazy, throwing their wrists up," Mihalakos told The Denver Post earlier this week, laughing at a group of kids impersonating CU's junior quarterback, Sanders.
