I tend to believe Manti. The guy was embarrassed to let out that he was invested in someone he'd never met. Online dating is comparable to how people perceived online gaming 10-15 years ago. It's not exactly something you go around telling people you do because it's still really foreign to the masses.
Because he lied about it for over a month to the media and fans. This in turn helped his Heisman chances. That's why people are mad.
If it was just a matter of him dating a girl that wasn't real this would be a non-story. It's the fact she died, he played it up, and then he lied about it to cover it up for well over a month.
