I figured it out...
I pulled the trans apart to find that I broke the tong inside of the synchronizer that holds the cushion spring (forgive my terminology). But long story short, when this piece of hardware broke, it seized the first gear to the shaft by putting pressure against the piece that the slider is tonged to. All of this makes plenty of sense when assessing the symptoms.
As far as causation, my unsprung clutch disk has to take some blame for the problem and then the other culprit was my right hand. (bad timing)
I will keep everyone posted as to what I get for parts to correct this.
