I don't think so. I think his first tweet was completely honest and transparent. He was struggling mentally and didn't want to play (also reports that Pollasek or however you spell his name was all over his ass) and Iowa helped him save face by declaring it a back issue as cover.He worded the followup tweet strangely, but my read is that he lied to everyone including Iowa about the back injury.
Now he has gotten to the point he wants to play again and tweeted out the truth this morning, but by doing that he also revealed that Iowa helped him cover. I'm sure that someone from the staff saw that and immediately contacted him and told him what a mistake that was and that he could get himself and Iowa into trouble.
He then makes the cover your ass tweets trying to cover up the cover up.
Ultimately it is something that Iowa did the "right" thing for the kid, but could get them in hot water with the NCAA. My guess is this was enough to satisfy everyone to move on and the NCAA has better things to worry about right now.
