After cursing during his postgame press conference about "stupid F***ing questions" from the media, Penny Hardaway decided to issue an apology to the University of Memphis (his school), the fans, and his team for his behavior. Hardaway said he let his emotions get the best of him. Here's the video:

The Memphis Tigers are currently 9-8 and 3-3 in conference play. The Tigers were ranked in the Top 25 in almost every single pre-season poll coming into the 2021-22 season and haven't made an NCAA Tournament field during Hardaway's tenure at Memphis.

Hardaway's Memphis Tigers team plays Tulsa on the road in American Athletic Conference play Sunday at 2:00 p.m. on ESPN.
