99 Cobra, 5 speed has 80,000 miles on it but clutch has 20,000 miles. Heres what it is doing--------

When I release the clutch in neutral then push it back in and try to put it in reverse I can hear it grinding to a slow stop then it will go into reverse. When I do the same thing and put it in 1st gear i can feel it want to move the car for a split second. I can put it through all the gears just fine as long as I dont let go of the clutch in neutral.

Sounds a lot like the clutch wire just needs adjusted. Don't know if you've tried that yet, but pulling the clutch out with your foot always seems to do the trick when it comes to adjusting the clutch line

Lemme know if you've tried this or not, cause it sure could be one of the major reasons...the clutch is just not tight enough, so that even when the clutch pedel is pushed all the way in, the clutch itself is NOT releasing off of the pressure plate.
